Huntsman to take comprehensive collection of coatings chemistries to ChinaCoat

02 November 2015

Coatings experts from three of Huntsman’s five business divisions will be at ChinaCoat in Shanghai this November to speak to attendees about the company’s comprehensive collection of chemistries.

At this year’s ChinaCoat, Huntsman will place special emphasis on chemistries that can enhance the processing and functionality of waterborne coatings – which are growing in popularity as global and regional environmental standards become increasingly stringent.

The business will also launch two new waterborne epoxy curing agents. Available under the ARADUR® brand, the new products are designed for use in construction and anti-corrosive coatings. Part of a wider portfolio of ARADUR® products that will be promoted at ChinaCoat the new products are:
ARADUR® 3951 multi-functional polyamide curing agent. Developed for the formulation of two-component anti-corrosion primers for metal, zinc-rich primers and direct-to-metal (DTM) coatings for industrial, marine and shipping container applications, ARADUR® 3951 can help create coatings with a low VOC content, quick drying properties, a long pot life and excellent corrosion protection
ARADUR® 36 waterborne epoxy curing agent. Delivering high gloss and good UV resistance, ARADUR® 36 agent is ideal for use in epoxy flooring and wall coatings, and systems created for other civil engineering projects.

Huntsman produces a broad range of chemical products and systems that formulators can use to drive performance at all stages of coatings manufacture and application. Other chemistries under the spotlight at ChinaCoat will include Huntsman’s JEFFAMINE® M series of polyetheramines. Colorless and easy to handle, these performance chemistries are used to modify epoxy resins and prepare high performance waterborne emulsions. JEFFAMINE® M1000 polyetheramine, which is a white and waxy solid at room temperature, can be used in the emulsification of epoxy resins, while JEFFAMINE® M2070 polyetheramine is a water-soluble monofunctional primary amine that can be used to modify a variety of resin types.

In addition, Huntsman will use ChinaCoat to showcase a range of pigments and additives that can potentially help coating formulators optimise the manufacture, performance, vibrancy and longevity of paints and coatings – both solvent- and water-based. Products include:
ADDIPASTTM and CARBOFINTM carbon black dispersions
ALTIRIS® pigments to increase the solar reflectance of coloured coatings
COLORPLEX® inorganic pigments for demanding coating applications
DELTIO® 81X free flowing pigment for weather resistance, whiteness and gloss
DISPERFIN® and TIMBASOL® pigment dispersions for wood coatings
FERROXIDE® iron oxide pigments for clean orange, red and yellow shades
JEFFLINK® chain extenders for colour stable spray elastomers and coatings
SOLAPLEX® yellow and orange pigments for indirect food contact applications
SACHTLEBEN® and TIOXIDE® titanium dioxide pigments for printing inks
TIOXIDE® TR88 titanium dioxide pigment for low-VOC and water-based paints
TINTERSOL® stir-in dispersions for decorative paints and industrial coatings
TRANS-OXIDE® transparent iron oxide pigments available in red, yellow and brown
Easy to disperse ULTRAMARINE TR pigments for the delivery of unique blue shades that offer optimum transparency and high strength.
