Brilliance without sagging

  • Optimum sag-appearance balance
  • Excellent flow and leveling
  • Robust application properties

To achieve best-in-class appearance, an excellent flow without paint sag during baking is required. Our Sag Control Agents (SCA) offer just that. At allnex, we manufacture a broad range of SCA based products for 1K and 2K clearcoats. Combining different SCA types allows you to optimize the appearance for both your specific line conditions and binder systems.

Compact without compromise

  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Reduced paint shop footprint
  • Lower carbon footprint

Compact processes eliminate a baking step, thereby enabling energy savings and reducing paint shop investment and footprint.  Our best in class DAOTAN® polyurethane and SETAQUA® acrylic dispersions enable you to develop waterborne basecoat and primer layers which - in a compact process, deliver the same look and appearance as in traditional 3c2b systems.

Waterborne basecoats with the best brightness and flop

  • Improved system appearance
  • Outstanding metal orientation
  • Excellent stone chip resistance

Our best-in-class DAOTAN® polyurethane and SETAQUA® polyacrylic dispersions deliver improved appearance properties vs solventborne. Our polyacrylic dispersions demonstrate outstanding rheology while our polyurethane dispersions feature excellent stone chip, flexibility and humidity resistance. In addition, they have the unique ability to maintain rheological properties when blended with our acrylic dispersions. For the best possible results, these basecoats should be applied on a WB primer based on one of our renowned RESYDROL® polyester emulsions.

Flow and flexibility for alloy wheels

  • Outstanding flow
  • Excellent adhesion
  • Superior transparency

Our CRYLCOAT® 2505-4 has excellent transparency and imparts outstanding flow without the need for flow promoters.  This combination of properties makes it ideally suited for alloy wheel top coats.

Plastics at the performance of metal with UV coatings

  • Chemical and mechanical resistance
  • Fast curing/dual cure
  • Flexibility for thermoforming/IMD

More and more, plastics replace metal in automotive interiors. At allnex, we have the largest portfolio of UV/EB (EBECRYL®), waterborne UV (UCECOAT®) and dual cure resins for protective coatings, functional coatings, in-mold decoration (IMD) and Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD)  for automotive interior applications. Our resins allow OEM and their suppliers to meet the tough requirements in terms of in-use performance, productivity, sustainability and versatility of the plastic parts.

Crosslinkers & catalysts for high performance automotive coatings

  • Broad Amino Crosslinker Portfolio
  • Optimize Coating Cure Profile
  • Enhance Coating Functionality

Our industry leading portfolio of CYMEL®, SETAMINE® and ETERMINO® amino crosslinkers and CYCAT® catalysts provides customers a range of high performance resins that can be used to optimize coating processing characteristics and in-use performance including coating durability, flexibility and appearance. Our diverse portfolio includes butylated, methylated and mixed ether melamine amino resins that can be used in both topcoat and base coat applications.
