Momentive Specialty Chemicals to Showcase VeoVa(TM) and Cardura(TM) Monomers at 2011 ABRAFATI Coatings Show

September 30, 2011 at 9:17 AM EDT

Columbus, OH – September 30, 2011 – Momentive, a global leader in specialty chemicals and materials, will showcase its VeoVa vinyl ester monomer and Cardura glycidyl ester monomer at the 2011 ABRAFATI Coatings show November 21-23 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. VeoVa and Cardura are the company’s unique monomers for low VOC emulsions and coatings for a wide variety of decorative and industrial applications.

VeoVa vinyl ester monomer, adopted both in decorative and industrial paints (wood, metal, concrete, etc), is used in high solids and water-based systems where hydrophobicity, hydrolytic stability, adhesion and UV resistance are required. Cardura glycidyl ester is a key ingredient in environmentally advanced coatings such as automotive clear coats, coil coatings and marine coatings where high solid formulations and low VOCs are desired. Cardura-based coatings improve flow and leveling and provide an easier, more controlled manufacturing route to high solid content, low viscosity acrylic polyols.

Momentive scientists will deliver a paper entitled “High quality vinyl ester based binders for paint and mortars,” which focuses on the performance properties of VeoVa on November 21 at the conference. Product information will also be available at the Momentive booth, #129, located at the corner of G and 3rd Streets.
