MUNICH, Germany – WACKER, the Munich-based chemical company, is boosting delivery capacity for VINNOL® surface coating resins. Starting in the first quarter of 2011, the amount of VINNOL H 15 available for delivery will rise substantially. Recent developments have led to the consolidation of the binder market and a scarcity of copolymeric vinyl-chloride binders. By increasing product availability, WACKER is playing a key role in ensuring the availability of raw-materials and meeting its responsibilities as a market leader in packaging coatings.
VINNOL surface coating resins are vinyl-chloride/vinyl-acetate co-polymers and terpolymers, available in a number of different molar compositions and polymerization degrees. The product portfolio includes grades without functional groups as well as grades with carboxyl or hydroxyl groups. VINNOL surface coating resins are used mainly as binders for printing inks, adhesives, and industrial and packaging coatings.
