New Resin for Protective Coatings Launched
A new fluoropolymer resin from manufacturer Honeywell (Morris Plains, NJ) is designed for use in protective coatings for infrastructure and high-value assets.
The company recently introduced the new fluoropolymer as an alternative to poly-fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) resins. The new product offers chemical resistance and low viscosity, allowing coating formulators to use less organic compounds, leading to lower VOC values, the company says.
In Use on Pipeline
The new fluoropolymer resin has been used, the company says, by Chinese graphene manufacturer Jiangsu Toppen to protect its new chemical pipeline structure in Jiangsu Province. The fluoropolymer was used as a topcoat over Jiangu Toppen’s graphene primer.
“Honeywell’s new fluoropolymer resin was developed by our technical team after years of testing and optimization,” said Ken Gayer, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Fluorine Products. “In addition to the significant performance benefits, this new product brings environmental benefits as well by reducing VOC emissions.”
