VINNAPAS® EF8300 – Interior Coatings Binder for Flat through Gloss Finishes
VINNAPAS® EF8300 is WACKER’s answer to binders for high performance coatings. Available in the Americas Region as a binder for architectural coatings, the VAE binder VINNAPAS® EF8300 combines high performance, such as good block resistance, wet adhesion and scrub resistance with low environmental impact and is ideal for flat through gloss finishes. It has a performance comparable to pure acrylics and exceeds that of vinyl acrylics and blend systems. It thus provides an acrylate-free option to replace traditional binders in high-end coatings, allowing the paint formulator to meet today’s VOC regulations.
VINNAPAS® EF8300 meets foreseeable environmental regulations because it is produced without the use of APEOs and allows the formulation of architectural coatings that are low VOC (< 5 g/l), very low residual monomer (< 200 ppm) and low formaldehyde without the addition of coalescing solvents. It is therefore GS-11 compliant and meets any foreseeable environmental regulations, such as CARB, OTC, LATCO, and SCAQMD.
VINNAPAS® EF8001 – Interior Coatings Binder for Flat and Mid-Sheen Paints
VINNAPAS® EF8001 is a versatile interior-coatings binder for low-odor and low-VOC paints. A premier binder for flat and mid-sheen paints, VINNAPAS® EF8001 combines superior low-odor and low-VOC capability with excellent performance and cost-in-use-benefits. It enables formulations of low-odor and low-VOC paints (< 5 g/l), since it has very low residual-monomer content (< 200 ppm) and does not need organic solvents or coalescing agents. Its odor profile is noticeably subdued; especially compared to standard vinyl acrylic technology. Furthermore, it is produced without the use of APEOs and features low formaldehyde. It is GS-11 compliant and meets applicable environmental regulations, including proposed reductions in VOC’s. VINNAPAS® EF8001 offers the paint formulator best-in-class performance in many key areas, such as scrub resistance and touch-up performance. Outperforming competing technologies such as traditional and low-VOC vinyl acrylics, VINNAPAS® EF8001 provides good alkaline hydrolysis resistance and affords the formulator greater formulation flexibility.
VINNAPAS® PVAC Solid Resins – VOC Compliant Mastics and Tackifier in Hot Melt Adhesives
VINNAPAS® UW PVAc solid resins are extremely well-suited for VOC compliant formulations when used in exterior or interior mastics such as landscape and sub-floor adhesives. An excellent binder for solvent-based multi-purpose glues, VINNAPAS® UW PVAC materials can be formulated with HAPs compliant solvents.
VINNAPAS® solid resins are indispensable when formulated as a tackifier in hot melt adhesives. Tackifiers based on VINNAPAS® PVAc and in particular, VINNAPAS® B provide many exceptional application ad-vantages such as minimizing adhesive migration, are color and odor free and are FDA approved. In addition, they allow increased formulation versatility, improved adhesion, and offer faster setting speeds.
