Biosuccinium® Helps Coatings Manufacturers Meet Sustainability Demands

Applications in Coatings

ORDER A SAMPLE

Government regulations and industry initiatives are driving the creation of more sustainable paints and coatings, thereby reducing levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). As a bio-based building block, Biosuccinium® offers applications for both solvents and polymers for coatings.

Biosuccinium® is a near drop-in for adipic acid and phthalic anhydride in coating resins. In many cases, it has been shown that coatings based on bio-succinic acid offer property benefits over current formulations. By using solvents or coalescing agents based on bio-succinic acid, VOC levels can be reduced while performance is maintained or even improved. Dimethyl succinate, a chemical derivative of succinic acid, is one such solvent and can also be used as a raw material for certain pigments.

In this way, bio-succinic acid can help address customer demand for high performance coatings while promoting sustainable bio-based materials. The platform chemical can increase the bio-based content of resins, such as polyesters, alkyds, urethanes and UV-curable coatings. Bio-succinic acid can also unlock performance benefits.
