Solvay solutions help coatings formulators to respectively achieve corrosion, heat, chemical, weather and water resistance – all performance and protection requirements for the most difficult environmental conditions. We also offer solutions for exceptional UV protection. 

 

Our solutions include waterborne Diofan® PVDC polymers for superior barrier properties (both oxygen and water/moisture).

 

Sipomer® PAM specialty monomers can be used in waterborne formulations for direct-to-metal applications with superior adhesion and moisture control. They are also suitable for solventborne coatings.

 

Rhodafac® phosphate ester emulsifiers are an excellent choice for superior metal corrosion resistance. Architectural coatings with Hylar® 5000 PVDF polymers provide outstanding adhesion to metal while providing exceptional color and gloss retention over 35 years by UV degradation, salt, wind driven sand and chemicals. Polymist® PTFE improves moisture resistance. 

 

Anti-Corrosion Coatings

Corrosion can be a big issue in direct-to-metal coatings. Solvay offers solutions in binder systems with phosphate ester surfactants, the Rhodafac® series and such specialty monomers as Sipomer® PAM and the COPS series to improve water and corrosion resistance, as well as adhesion to aluminium and cold steel metals. 

 

Diofan® PVDC polymers provide exceptional corrosion resistance and moisture resistance. Halar® ECTFE, Hyflon® PFA/MFA®, Ryton® PPS and KetaSpire® PEEK polymers are all recommended for powder and aqueous coatings as ideal corrosion materials in a wide variety of industries. 

 

Blanc Fixe is a multi-functional extender based on Barium Sulfate chemistry and is free from impurities such as quartz. Blanc Fixe enhances anti-corrosion properties while improving hiding power and tint strength in architectural & industrial coatings applications as well as in pigment paste and pigments.

Blanc Fixe can be dispersed relatively easily. 

Catechol and TBC are highly efficient corrosion inhibitors mainly used in the field of electronics  

 

High-Temperature Resistant Coatings

Solvay offers a wide range of higher performance polymers that are ideal for high temperature resistant coatings. These include KetaSpire® PEEK, Ryton® PPS, Algoflon® PTFE, Hyflon® PFA/MFA® and many more. Based on the choice of material and service conditions, continuous service high temperatures range from >100°C to more than 300°C.

 

Chemical Resistant Coatings

Solvay offers a wide range of higher performance polymers that are ideal for a wide range of chemically-resistant coating needs. These include KetaSpire® PEEK, Ryton® PPS, Algoflon® PTFE, Hyflon® PFA/MFA® and many more. Based on service needs, selection of the proper coating material can allow use in very low to very high pH while offering such protection also at elevated temperatures.

Blanc Fixe is a multi-functional extender based on Barium Sulfate chemistry which is free from impurities such as quartz. Blanc Fixe improves hiding power and tint strength in architectural & industrial coatings applications as well as in pigment paste and pigments. Blanc Fixe can be dispersed relatively easily. Blanc Fixe is totally inert under normal conditions, and possesses high resistance to outdoor exposure and to chemicals. 

Typical applications include anti-corrosion coatings, anti-fouling paints, coil coatings, can coatings, wood coatings, road marking paints, pigment paste and pigment preparation and insulating lacquers and varnishes.  

 

Weather Resistant Coatings

Our solutions include waterborne Diofan® PVDC polymers for superior barrier properties, both oxygen and water/moisture.

Sipomer® PAM specialty monomers are used in waterborne formulations for direct-to-metal applications with superior adhesion and moisture control and are also suitable for solventborne coatings. Rhodafac® phosphate ester emulsifiers are an excellent choice for superior metal corrosion resistance. 

 

Hylar® PVDF resins offer outstanding weathering and UV resistance in coating formulations. Many other Solvay polymers such as Algoflon® PTFE dispersions used in coatings have an inherently high weather resistance. 

Blanc Fixe is a multi-functional extender based on Barium Sulfate chemistry and is free from impurities such as quartz. Blanc Fixe enhances weather resistance while improving hiding power and tint strength in architectural & industrial coatings applications as well as in pigment paste and pigments.

Blanc Fixe can be dispersed relatively easily. Typical applications include anti-corrosion coatings, anti-fouling paints, coil coatings, can coatings, wood coatings, road marking paints, pigment paste and pigment preparation and insulating lacquers and varnishes.

 

Hydrophobic and Water Resistant Coatings

Whether you’re after water resistance, water repellency or increased hydrophobicity for your coatings, Solvay offers solutions in specialty binders and additives to improve your coatings’ performance through better surface characteristics and lower surface tension.

Our solutions include Diofan® PVDC, Ixan® PVDC, Hylar® PVDF, Algoflon® PTFE and Hyflon® PFA/MFA® polymers. We also offer Sipomer® specialty monomers and polymerizable stabilizers, as well as Polymist® PTFE and Fluorolink® PFPE additives. These will enhance your coatings’ water resistance and performance.
