Known for their protective properties, acrylic resins are widely used to enhance the performance of today’s acrylic coating technology. Gellner Industrial manufactures a vast assortment of water-based acrylic polymers that can be used to produce premium-quality acrylic resins and chemicals. These products are valuable in a wide variety of applications, including printing inks, high-gloss varnishes, and an array of industrial coatings.

High-Performance Resins and Chemicals for Acrylic Coatings

The adhesion and hardness characteristics of our water-based acrylic polymers allow for bonding to a diversity of substrates. When used in the formulation of acrylic resins, they offer remarkable resistance qualities to all types of exposure, including chemicals, water and alkaline cleaners. An acrylic resin made with Gellner Industrial polymers can also be used to replace harsh chemical solvents in acrylic coatings allowing for more environmentally-friendly products.

Our acrylic resins and chemicals create these attributes in acrylic coatings:

  • Good adhesion to non-porous surfaces
  • Excellent gloss, finish and clarity
  • Better storage stability
  • Superior hardness
  • Improved flow
  • Superb weatherability
  • Improved solubility
  • Alkali-resistance Anti-corrosion properties


The use of an Ottopol acrylic resin will result in adhesion to polyethylene, polypropylene, PVC, mylar, vinyl and most plastic surfaces. An acrylic resin also produces inks and acrylic coatings that have very good line lube resistance in areas of beverage cartons.

Gellner Industrial’s water-based acrylic polymers produce acrylic resins with exceptional properties. In fact, it is not uncommon for our customers to tell us that our acrylic resins and chemicals adhere better than anything else on the market. Working with print and ink manufacturers as well as other niche-oriented markets, Gellner Industrial remains steadfast in our commitment to meet and fulfill your acrylic coating needs.
