Sun Chemical’s Performance Pigments and Advanced Materials divisions will showcase a full spectrum of pigment and resin technologies at ABRAFATI 2019, which will be held October 1-3 in São Paulo, Brazil. Visitors to Sun Chemical’s booth (Aisle D, Stand 2) will also learn about key investments in product line expansions to meet the needs and trends of the marketplace.
“ABRAFATI is an opportunity for Sun Chemical to demonstrate the many ways in which our versatile range of tailor-made solutions can help customers deliver coatings with exciting color options and exceptional performance properties,” said Mehran Yazdani, president of Sun Chemical Performance Pigments and Advanced Materials. “We look forward to showing how our newest products and investments are delivering solutions tailor-made to meet our customers’ needs in Latin America.”
Sun Chemical’s new Benda Lutz® COMPAL PC aluminum preparations for powder coatings will be on display at the booth. Developed for dry blending and bonding, the technology’s pelletized form reportedly eliminates dusting to minimize housekeeping, simplifies equipment cleanup, and improves worker exposure. Vitor Brito, an account manager at Sun Chemical Performance Pigments, will deliver a presentation about COMPAL PC entitled “Versatile Pelletized Aluminum for Powder Coatings” in the Pigment Auditorium on October 2.
The company’s polyester polyols for reactive hot melts are available in amorphous, liquid, and crystalline varieties. The FINEPLUS® HM series reportedly features flexibility and quality, as well as adhesion to substrates such as metal, plastics, textiles, and glass in aeronautical, automotive, naval, medical, and packaging applications.
According to Sun Chemical, its BURNOCK® AC series includes a variety of solventborne acrylics for various coatings on plastic. BURNOCK AC 1651 is a solventborne acrylic that features adhesion to untreated polypropylene, specifically EPDM-modified types, and other common plastic substrates such as ABS, PC, PS, PMMA, PVC, and more.
Reportedly ideal for major applications in the aerospace, automotive, electronics, tooling, and adhesives industries, Sun Chemical’s EPICLON epoxy resins impart high-performance composites with heat and water resistance, toughness, and excellent adhesion; they come with difunctional, trifunctional, and tetrafunctional varieties.
