Niche Polymers

Gellner Industrial has developed a wide range of water-based polymers, some of which are more unique than the usual resins found on the market. These ‘niche’ polymers have excellent benefits for coatings in a number of different industries.

We’ve developed two niche polymers that have hydroxyl functionality. Both of these polymers cross-link with melamine and isocyanates. Ottopol 523 has excellent solvent resistance as well, while Ottopol 510-28 has the added benefit of salt fog resistance. 

Gellner has also developed Ottopol 502, a hard nonionic polymer that has excellent stain blocking properties, without forming a film on the surface. This particular polymer can improve the resistance properties of standard inks and coatings, and has compatibility with a wide range of resins.
