The previous four months has been challenging for the newly formed Eastern Coatings Federation. With the recent closures in Atlantic City the future of the Taj Mahal was questionable. A court ruling this past week has confirmed - the TAJ MAHAL WILL BE OPEN for the Eastern Coatings Show! One change that had to happen, due to the uncertainty, was changing the date. The new date for the ECS 2015 show will be June 1st-4th. One benefit we will all see - warmer weather! The booth spaces are 70%+ filled, forty technical paper abstracts submitted and 1000 attendees are expected. Don't miss this great show.

EVONIK TECHNOLOGY UPDATE: Evonik has recently introduced the New SILIKOPHEN AC 900 AND AC 100 silicone resins. Please find the Tego 'Manual,' along with TDS' attached. These products will officially be launched at the ACS in Atlanta. Samples are now being brought in and should be available in early April.
The Tego Advantage - Formulations with SILIKOPHEN® AC 900 and SILIKOPHEN® AC 1000 offer excellent long-term heat resistance of up to 650°C depending on the formulation. Short dry-totouch as well as complete through-drying times and rapid crosslinking permit coated objects to be handled and packaged quickly, creating even more cost savings during processing. In addition, the coating’s chemical resistance to aliphatic and aromatic solvents at low temperatures is quickly established after application.
EcoVAE 401 is a vinyl acetate/ethylene emulsion designed for low odor paint applications. Paints utilizing the emulsion can be formulated without any coalescing solvents resulting in low VOC, environmentally-friendly products. EcoVAE 401 is also APE-free.
- excellent scrub and stain resistance
- low odor
- low VOC
- very good wet edge
- excellent film formation
- low residual monomer content
- ability to produce environmentally friendly coatings
EcoVAE 405 is formulated using vinyl acetate / ethylene technology along with state of the art manufacturing processes to deliver an environmentally-friendly binder that has superior scrub resistance, stain resistance, and pigment binding properties. When formulated with other appropriate raw materials, EcoVAE 405 is capable of producing coatings that are <5 g/L while being APE free. When using EcoVAE 405, coatings can be produced that meet consumers’ expectations for eco-friendly coatings.
- Low to Zero VOC capabilities
- Low odor
- Low residual monomer content
- Excellent scrub and stain resistance
- Very good wet edge
- Excellent film formation
Avicor 381 polymer emulsion is a high scrub, formaldehyde-free vinyl acrylic designed to give superior performance in both interior and exterior paints. Its combination of high molecular weight, good film formation, flexibility and water resistance produces paint films with excellent toughness, scrub resistance, gloss and durability.
