Kraton Corporation’s broad product offering and innovative technologies provide coatings formulators and end-users a wide range of options.
With vertical integration in both tall oil and dimer fatty acids processing, Kraton Corporation is uniquely qualified to deliver the product consistency and performance that coatings applications demand.
Lower Carbon Footprint for Decorative Coatings
Our SYLFAT™ tall oil fatty acids provide greater hardness, faster drying, excellent outdoor durability and low yellowing to the alkyd based decorative paints. Kraton Corporation’s tall oil based alkyd binders generate only 15% CO2 emissions compared to vegetable-oil based alternatives. As a result Kraton Corporation enables the coatings industry to decrease its carbon footprint while increasing performance. Having its roots in pine chemicals, SYLFAT™ is the sustainable fatty acid for the coatings industry.
Rheology Control in Alkyds
Our dimer acid based UNI-REZ™ thixotropic polyamides provide non-drip performance, ease of use, polar solvent resistance and increased control of rheology for alkyd formulators.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) Regulation
Kraton Corporation’s recent innovation, a novel tall oil technology used in alkyd emulsions and high solid alkyds, enables coating formulators to comply with the VOC requirements of the coatings industry while increasing performance. The technology provides cycle time savings, almost zero VOC emissions, faster drying and early hardness while not requiring co-solvent usage.
