Nissin chemical and Shin-Etsu MicroSi launch vinyl resin products.
Nissin Chemical of Japan and Shin-Etsu MicroSi of Phoenix have
introduced two solution vinyl resin products, key components in the
manufacturing of paints, coatings, inks, adhesives and films. Both
Nissin Chemical and Shin-Etsu MicroSi are wholly owned subsidiaries of
ShinEtsu Chemical, the world's largest supplier of semiconductor
materials and silicones, PVC resins, synthetic quartz glass and
methylcellulose. The Vinyblan series is a water-based emulsion developed
using the company's polymerization technology. It leverages the
features of vinyl chloride to provide: Excellent adhesion Colorant
dispersion Flame resistance Chemical stability with other emulsions
Water based environmentally friendly emulsion The Vinyblan product line
has been tested for use as a coating on painted surfaces to improve
resistance properties and as a vehicle in paint manufacturing to improve
color, dispersion and viscosity. It has a strong polarity from vinyl
chloride resin and excellent chromogenic properties when printing.
Vinyblan is sold in cans, drums and totes; free samples are available at
the company's website. The Solbin series is a modified copolymer
resin combining the toughness of vinyl chloride with the strong
adhesiveness and plasticity of vinyl acetate. The solvent-based Solbin
products exhibit the following characteristics: Forms an odorless,
tasteless and transparent film Is highly resistant to chemicals such as
acids, alkalis and brine Forms a coating film resistant to water,
fire-retardant, self-extinguishing, thermoplastic, and heat-sealable.
The Solbin products are sold in 20 to 25 kg bags and are also available
for sampling. Earlier this year it was announced that Nissin Chemical
would manufacture the resins in Japan and Shin-Etsu MicroSi will fulfill
sales, distribution and applications support in the U.S. Nissin Chemical
of Takefu, Japan, is a major supplier of vinyl resins and copolymers to
the Asian and Indian markets.
