Dow Coating Materials

Dow elevates acrylic coatings to industrial scale with advanced technologies offering stronger protection, easier application and lower VOC. Our products include AVANSE™ and MAINCOTE™ Acrylic Resins for metal; PARALOID™ B66 Resin in VOC-exempt solvent for concrete; and RHOPLEX™ Binders for elastomeric wall coatings. New offerings include MAINCOTE™ 4950 Acrylic Resin, a high performance, ultra-low VOC (< 50 g/L) binder for general metal finishing and commercial architecture. Visit dow.com/coatingmaterials to learn about our entire portfolio, including resins for primers and DTM finishes, insulation coatings and liquid applied sound damping.


Few binder chemistries offer the convenience and simplicity of one-component acrylics for industrial coatings. They are ready to spray with less mixing, no induction time and no pot life. In many cases, applicators can set up faster, start spraying more quickly and save left-over material for later use. Waterborne acrylics offer the added advantages of low odor, low VOC, no flammability and solvent-free clean-up. Today, significant improvements in the performance of one-component acrylic coatings are pushing their utility well beyond light-duty applications. This webinar will describe the basic chemistry and film formation process of one-component acrylics, technologies that are raising performance properties, applications in light-to-medium duty maintenance and protection of concrete and steel, applications in commercial architecture (including green building trends), and new uses such as liquid applied sound damping.
