Hexion to Showcase Latest Application Developments with Versatic™ Derivatives Technologies at the American Coatings Show

March 22, 2022 at 8:40 AM EDT

COLUMBUS, Ohio - (March 22, 2022) – Hexion, a global leader in waterborne and lower VOC coating solutions, will highlight the latest application development advances with its VeoVa™ Vinyl Esters and Cardura™ Glycidyl Ester technologies at the American Coatings Show, April 5-7, at the Indiana Convention Center. Manufacturers looking to improve the performance and sustainability of their industrial or architectural coatings will be able to explore the most recent developments in VeoVa Silane technology and Cardura monomer solutions, as well as take a tour of Hexion’s recently launched VeoVa house (veovahouse.hexion.com).

VeoVa Silane technology, based on Hexion’s VeoVa vinyl ester monomers, enables the production of high-performance, versatile, and isocyanate-free resins that are very cost-competitive compared to acrylic- and epoxy-polysiloxane technologies. Such resins can be used by coating manufacturers to create more environmentally friendly protective, marine or wood coatings which deliver similar performance to two-component (2K) polyurethane coatings.

With Hexion’s Cardura glycidyl ester, it is easier to produce low-viscosity acrylic polyols (APOs) for lower-VOC solvent and waterborne binders. These APOs, in turn, enable regulatory compliance while delivering excellent durability and aesthetics in automotive and industrial coatings.

In addition to having technical experts available to discuss VeoVa and Cardura technologies and processes, Hexion will also feature its “VeoVa House” in Booth 2348. VeoVa House (veovahouse.hexion.com) is a new, easy-to-navigate, digital showroom of VeoVa vinyl ester applications in residential and commercial construction, including a variety of customer resources.
