Amino Crosslinkers & Catalysts for high performance packaging coatings

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

allnex provides an industry leading portfolio of CYMEL®, SETAMINE®, and ETERMINO® amino crosslinkers and CYCAT® catalysts for metal packaging coating applications. This diverse portfolio includes melamine, urea and benzoguanamine resins offering a range of coating cure characteristics.

Phenolics for high performance metal packaging coatings

  • Broad Phenolics Crosslinker Portfolio
  • Water & Solvent-Based Resins
  • Enhance Flexibility & Chemical Resistance

allnex provides an industry leading portfolio of water and solvent-based PHENODUR® phenolic crosslinkers used in high performance general metal and packaging applications. This  portfolio offers a range of  compositions, binder compatabilities and cure characteristics and can be used to enable improved coating properties such as flexibility, heat resistance and chemical resistance.

Enabling phenolics for BPA-non intended coatings

  • BPA and BADGE NI Enabling
  • Highly flexibility
  • High chemical resistance

PHENODUR® grade resins are eco-friendly and high flexibility phenolic resins that can be used for formulating BPA- and BADGE-Non Intended can coatings. These heat curable, non-plasticized phenol-resol resins are part of allnex’s broad portfolio of phenolic resins covering a variety of coating applications and performance requirements.

Epoxy-free powder coatings for food contact

  • Epoxy-Free
  • Food Contact
  • Blooming Resistance

The latest in epoxy-free powder coating solution for food contact application: CRYLCOAT® E 04324 is a special hydroxylated polyester, NPG free, for use with Poly-anhydride BECKOPOX® EH 694 to produce coatings with high blooming resistance.
Innovation: We are developing a lower OHV version, CRYLCOAT® E 04539, that would allow the formulation of Bisphenol-A free powder coatings as an alternative to liquid epoxy coatings, intended for contact with food and beverage.

Adhesion and toughness for can coatings and metal deco

  • Adhesion
  • Direct to Metal
  • Toughness

Radcure base resins and epoxies are commonly used on the bottom rim of aluminum cans but there has been a recent resurgence in radcure polyester acrylates for metal deco applications.  Products like EBECRYL® 548 and EBECRYL® 444 can give the adhesion and toughness required.

Getting rid of BPA with liquid solutions

  • EXTREME CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
  • BPA FREE TECHNOLOGY
  • LOW FILM THICKNESS

In areas where extreme chemical resistance is required at low film thickness, allnex can provide a solution. RESISTHERM® offers a stoving solution with the highest chemical resistance found in the market.
