Almatex Acrylic Resins Almatex acrylics represent wide range of high
quality crystal clear acrylic powder coating resins. They are mainly GMA
acrylics (epoxy functional), although hydroxyl functional or carboxylic
functional acrylics (HFA or CFA) are also Available.
These acrylic resins are used extensively in powder coating applications in
the automotive industry. Other markets include aluminum wheels, outdoor
furniture, lawn and garden equipment, household hardware and appliances,
and various architectural uses.
The GMA acrylics contain glycidyl functional groups which, when combined
with polycarboxylic acid compounds as the curing agent, exhibit excellent
properties for coating materials. Powder coating made from Almatex GMA
acrylics is especially noted for weather durability, gloss, crystal
clarity, chemical resistance, and smooth finish. The resins exhibit
excellent over bake tolerance, good caking stability, excellent electrical
insulation properties, and an outstanding performance in electrostatic
spraying equipment. These products are also more environmentally friendly
compared to solvent based products.
