Your choices to improve hiding and reduce costs of paint formulations are better than ever before.
New CELOCOR™ opaque polymer is a highly efficient, voided latex product that improves hiding and whiteness in paints and coatings, and functions as a partial replacement for titanium dioxide (TiO2). Now you have more choices, with a new product that offers important benefits.
• Excellent efficiency
• Wet and dry hiding performance comparable to competitive opacifiers
• Wide formulating latitude and excellent performance across a broad PVC range
• Improved tint strength performance
CELOCOR™opaque polymer compares favorably to commercially available competitive products with a balance of key properties that gives you wide formulating latitude to achieve your objectives.
Comparable Wet and Dry Hide Performance
Wet and dry hide performance were measured by incorporating CELOCOR™ opaque polymer and two competitive commercial opaque polymers into individual formulations for a high quality interior flat latex paint. In both formulations CELOCOR™ opaque polymer provided hiding performance comparable to competitive products.
One formulation was based on ENCOR™ 634 100% acrylic binder.
One formulation was based on ENCOR™ 309 vinyl acrylic binder.
†Paints were formulated with 7% PVC of opacifier and a 1.6% PVC (21lb/100gal)reduction of TiO2. Coatings were applied using a 3 mil bar
Tint Strength Performance
Using the same formulations noted above, tint strength performance was measured against a control formulation with no opacifier. CELOCOR™ opaque polymer provides comparable or improved performance compared to competitive products.
††Tinted with 2 oz. Colortrend® (Evonik Degussa) phthalo blue.
New CELOCOR™ opaque polymer meets the requirements of the Arkema Coating Resins EnVia™ certification program. Products that meet our rigorous standards are designed to help formulators meet their own environmental and sustainability objectives.
