Arkema Coating Resins has introduced an opaque polymer for coating hiding and whiteness that functions as a partial replacement for titanium dioxide (TiO2).

Arkema Coatings

Celocor opaque polymer is designed to reduce raw material costs and improve hiding in a wide range of products, including interior and exterior coatings. Arkema says Celocor can help formulators achieve their sustainability and regulatory goals in finished coating products.

‘More Formulating Options’

“We recognize that the cost and availability of TiO2 are among the most important issues that coatings formulators are facing today,” said Eric Kaiser, Global Marketing Director. “Celocor opaque polymer gives paint developers more formulating options in their approach to TiO2 reduction.”

The low-odor product contains no added APE surfactants or formaldehyde and is compatible with low VOC (0-50 g/l) formulations, the manufacturer says

“Everything we do is based around the needs of the formulator,” Kaiser said. “In speaking with our customers, we found that they are very interested in having more options for TiO2 reduction while maintaining a good balance of performance attributes in their products.”
