Products for the paints and coatings industry

The demands made on products for the paints and coatings industry are constantly rising. At their heart is the need for products that do not harm people or the environment, produce special surface effects, and have good adhesion to various primers, yet are simple to apply and offer a range of additional functions such as corrosion protection. Wherever possible, water-borne colorants should be used. Kuraray has been a competent partner for the paints and coatings industry for decades.

PVOH based binders

Thanks to their good physical and chemical properties, KURARAY POVAL™ (Mowiol) / KURARAY POVAL™ polyvinyl alcohols have been used for many years as binders for emulsion paints and wood primers. As the world’s leading PVOH producer, Kuraray can tailor its product properties specifically to customers' requirements.

PVB-based binders

Coatings based on Mowital® polyvinyl butyrals have very good adhesion to steel, iron, zinc, aluminium and other light metals. If they are combined with phenolic resins, epoxy resins or phosphoric acid, adhesion and corrosion protection can be increased even further.
Mowital® are the ideal basis for all types of paints and lacquers: strippable coatings on packaging, automotive repair coatings, stoving finishes/can coatings, packaging lacquers, film coatings, electrical insulating coatings, adhesive coatings, heat-sealing coatings, radiator lacquers, wood sealing varnishes, insulating finishes, plastic coatings, nitrocellulose lacquers, oil-resistant lacquers, paper coatings, additives for powder coatings, roller coatings and zinc rich primers.
