RÜTGERS Chemicals AG has extended its program of hydrocarbon resins by 13 new NOVARES types. These new NOVARES LC liquid resins were developed as modifiers for reactive resin systems based on epoxy resins, PU, polysulfides and acrylates. With a wide polarity range between 0.5% and 6.5% OH content, these liquid resins could be selected for a range of technical requirements. Product viscosity is low and allows development and production of VOC-reduced and solvent-free coatings. In addition, increased crystallization stability allows for easy processing in difficult climatic conditions.
