Known for their protective properties, acrylic resins are widely used to enhance the performance of today’s acrylic coating technology. When developed correctly, they are an incredibly versatile type of polymer that can add several benefits to a range of coatings.
Acrylic resins are Gellner’s bread and butter. We manufacture a vast assortment of water-based acrylic polymers that produce premium-quality acrylic resins. 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 for Acrylic Coatings
The adhesion and hardness characteristics of our water-based acrylic polymers allow for bonding to a diversity of substrates. From wood to metal to various plastics and more, we’ve developed a range of acrylic polymers for each of these surfaces. And, 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 can also be used to replace harsh chemical solvents in acrylic coatings allowing for more environmentally friendly products. Our acrylic polymers are water-based and low VOC, making them much more friendly to the environment overall than other chemicals.
Screen printing inks are essential to silk screen printing, which is one of the most versatile printing processes in existence today. This ink comes in many different weights and offers varying degrees of adhesion and resistance properties.
Gellner has manufactured a number of water-based solution polymers that are perfect for a range of printing inks and coatings.
The Benefits of Acrylic Resins
Our acrylic resins and chemicals impart these attributes to a range of 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-resistant, Anti-corrosion properties
The use of an acrylic resin from the Ottopol series will also result in adhesion to polyethylene, polypropylene, PVC, mylar, vinyl, and most plastic surfaces. Some of our acrylic resins can also produce inks and acrylic coatings that have very good line-lube resistance on products like beverage cartons.
