This company recently introduced a new resin that may help manufacturers formulate coatings with lower volatile organic compounds (VOCs). GP® BKS-2605 resin reportedly provides the performance attributes of the company’s’ GP BKS-2600 resin, but has the added ability to allow customers to produce a lower VOC coating than that available with GP BKS-2600 resin.

Designed for drum, pail and other rigid substrate coating applications, the resin provides chemical resistance and metal adhesion characteristics. It reportedly contains higher solids than the GP BKS-2600 resin.

“Lowering VOCs continues to be a major driver for our customers,” said Robert Schlager, account manager for coatings. “We are working closely with them to develop products that will help them achieve their specific goals.”
