Paints and Coatings
Since the beginning of time, humans have developed various paints and coatings in order to preserve materials and products, avoid corrosion, oxidation and their displacement, as well as increase their visual appeal. At Polímeros Sintéticos we make gum rosin-based resins for the manufacture of paints and coatings, providing the best quality and durability to obtain […]
For thousands of years, printed media has been an important part of human’s life. From the earliest days of printing on papyrus and paper, to the invention of the movable type printing press, various types of printing ink technologies were developed to satisfy this demand. Today, types such as sheet-fed gravure, rotogravure, offset, screen printing, […]
Adhesives are utilized to hold two or more articles together by surface contact. Also known as glues, they require high adhesion and measured strength (based upon the application) to achieve the desired results. There are a variety of adhesive systems including Hot Melt and Pressure Sensitive as well as other specialty adhesive systems such as […]
Road marking paint is used to provide safety striping by marking our streets and roads through the use of lane marking, cross walks, and traffic signs, which allow transport to move more safely. This must be a visible, permanent, and long-lasting paint. Solvent based paints have historically been utilized to provide this safety effect. However, […]
We find rubber in our daily lives in the form of tires, insulators, plastics such as balls or toys, and rubber articles for a variety of uses. Rubber or elastomers get physical and mechanical properties such as elasticity and resistance using quality additives in the polymerization process. Polímeros Sintéticos supplies Disproportionated Rosin Soap for the […]
There are many industries that utilize gum rosin-based resins to improve performance, quality, and functionality of the end use products.
Gum rosin-based resins favor the manufacture of pigments during the grinding process by improving compatibility with solvents and mineral oils, helping to control viscosities, and improving Total Area Coverage.
There are many industries that utilize gum rosin-based resins to improve performance, quality, and functionality of the end use products. Within the markets we serve we find: Paper manufacturing: Gum rosin-based resins are used in papermaking as they have long been the traditional sizing agent for paper, which imparts resistance to penetration by fluids. Most […]
