High efficient specialty monomers

The Solvay Sipomer® range of specialty monomers are designed to improve performance in waterborne architectural coatings, waterborne industrial coatings and waterborne adhesives. These highly effective and efficient specialty monomers are usually used in the range of 0.5 to 5% (based on total monomers) to deliver significant performance improvement of the final formulations.

 

Build more functionality into your waterborne coatings formulations

The binders made with these Sipomer® specialty monomers can be formulated into paints and coatings with better corrosion resistance, better scrub resistance, better scratch resistance and better water resistance. Sipomer® specialty monomers promote better direct-to-metal (DTM) adhesion and improved adhesion on other inorganic surfaces and other difficult substrates. 

 

Sipomer® applications

Sipomer® is very effective and efficient. In most applications, these monomers deliver significant performance at a low usage level and bring functionality to polymers, such as:

  1. Adhesion: metal, glass, concrete, aged alkyd, wood, leather, etc
  2. Corrosion resistance 
  3. Scrub resistance
  4. Scratch resistance
  5. Water resistance
  6. Lower foaming tendency
  7. Mechanical stability
  8. Freeze thaw stability
  9. Rheology control
  10. Balancing of Pressure sensitive adhesive properties
     

 

Sipomer® provides real and visible benefits

Whether your formulation is waterborne, solventborne or you seek support in transitioning towards waterborne, Sipomer® will deliver in the following benefits:

  • Improved mechanical, thermal & salt stability
  • Antifoam chemical
  • Scrub control
  • High gloss clear coat
  • Low water sensitivity
  • Improved adhesion (wet, metal, inorganic, wood & pigments)
