Markets We Serve: Consumer Goods & Appliances

Our polymers have a wide range of applications, some of which are especially beneficial for coatings in the market of consumer goods and appliances. Whether you need polymers to improve paints or inks, or to assist furniture coatings and more, we’ve got you covered. Our water-based acrylic resins have excellent adhesions properties, and can impart stain resistance as well as several other useful characteristics to products made with them.


Acrylic Resins for Consumer Applications

We are always looking for ways to improve our polymers and develop resins that are beneficial for a range of applications. One of the major markets that we have served for many years has been water-based polymers for acrylics and vinyl applications. We manufacture polymers that impart stain-blocking properties to paints while still having superior adhesion to a variety of surfaces. Some can assist primers, while others are good sealers for wooden surfaces like furniture. 

Our products can impart many different beneficial properties to products for consumer applications:

  • Superior adhesion to porous and nonporous surfaces
  • Stain resistance, and in some cases, stain-blocking properties
  • Water resistance, as well as resistance to water-based stains
  • High performance sealants
  • Excellent pigment binding for inks and acrylic paints

We’ve also recently developed a new product, Ottopol KO, which easily blocks tannin oils from woods as well as fungal growth, even in damp and humid environments.

Our acrylic resins have many applications in the market of Consumer Goods and Appliances:

  • Paints and coatings
  • Wood finishes
  • Sealers
  • Stain-blocking primers
  • Furniture coatings
