Government regulations and industry initiatives are driving the creation of more sustainable paints and coatings, reducing levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Extra functionalities have also emerged as the investment in superior bio-based resins grows.
As a bio-based building block, Biosuccinium® offers applications for both solvents and resins for coatings. Bio-succinic acid helps address customer demand for high performance coatings while promoting sustainable bio-based materials. It can increase the bio-based content of resins such as polyesters, alkyds, urethanes and UV-curable coatings.
