Boosting alkyd resins performance, sustainability & safety profile

Key challenges for alkyd resins producers are to cost-effectively meet the growing demand from consumers for improved performance, sustainability and safety. Meeting low VOC legislation, reducing your carbon footprint of alkyd paints or developing advanced, durable waterborne alkyds requires dedicated expertise and support. We cover all these angles and much more. ​

Protective paints that protect the environment

If you are looking to fine-tune resins/paints to meet low VOC demands with high solids and waterborne solutions, we have the perfect portfolio for you. With a long history in Penta applications and being a leader in pro-environment polyols, we have built up the sustainable technology, knowledge and expertise to add an innovative edge and real value to your alkyds. This includes developing ECO impact waterborne alkyds with high performance properties.

Differentiate your offer further and significantly reduce your carbon footprint by using renewable raw materials such as Voxtar™ (renewable Penta) with TOFA (Tall Oil Fatty Acid). The results are low VOC and low CO2 alkyd paints that give outstanding protection. For example Penta/Voxtar as a building block enhance UV and weather stability as well as resistance against oxidation and chemical attack.

Reduce your development cost and speed up the transitioning process to waterborne solutions with us as a collaborative partner. Our comprehensive service offer can support you on the way through the development journey with broad network, development support, IP support, digital formulation tool and logistic solutions. 

Mass balance

An ingenious concept

The Mass balance concept allows the chemical industry to switch to renewable raw material in easy steps. We believe mass balance is a necessary strategy and intermediary step allowing industry to make the switch from fossil to renewable and recycled resources.
