Paints & Coatings and Inks

Paints n Coatings 3This group of chemicals consists of raw materials for Alkyd Resins, Pigments, Solvents etc. used in manufacturing Resins for Paints and Inks. It also includes pigments like TiO2 and additives like MEKO.

The main products in this category are :
Castor Oil
Specifications
We offer this product out of India, which accounts for over 90% of the product traded internationally. The most common grade of product used in this application is First Special Grade (FSG)

REACH not required (agriculture product)

DCO
Specifications
This is a drying oil used in Paint/Coating and Ink industry. We offer this product out of India. DCO has properties similar to Tung Oil, but comes with the advantage of not turning yellow over time.

Pre REACH Registration

DCO FA
Specifications
This derivative of Castor Oil is also sourced from India. Its main uses are alkyd resins and polyamides used for making numerous paint and printing inks formulations. Styrenated Epoxy Esters of these fatty acids are used in prime quality automotive paints. It is also used in the manufacture of High Solid Alkyds, Acrylic and Epoxy Ester Resins, which are useful for interior and exterior can coatings, appliance finishes, automotive topcoats, primers, coil coatings, tube coatings, marine finishes, overprint varnishes and high-speed printing inks.

REACH not required

Gum Rosin
Specifications
This product is sourced out of China and Vietnam. Main uses are manufacturing of Alkyd Resins, Ink Resins, Paper Sizing, Synthetic Runner etc.

REACH not required (agriculture product)

Maleic Anhydride
Specifications
This chemical is sourced out of China, Korea and Taiwan. The main uses are in manufacturing of Unsaturated Polyester Resins and also additive for lubricating oils.

Pre REACH Registration

Titanium Di Oxide
Specifications
This chemical is sourced out of China and India. TiO2 is by far the largest used pigment. About 50% of the consumption is in the paints and coatings industry. Another 20% in plastics and 15% in Paper Industry. There are a number of forms in which the product exists, but Rutile and Anatase are the most commonly available commercially. Rutile is manufactured by 2 processes, chloride process and sulfate process. Indian product is produced by the chloride process, which yields a product that has a bluish tinge. Chinese product is generally produced by the sulfate process, which yields a product which yellows over time.

Pre REACH Registration

Adipic Acid
Specifications
Though the most common use of Adipic Acid is the production of Nylon 6, 6 it is also used in coatings, plasticizer industry, polymers etc. We source this product from China, which has a huge overcapacity.

Pentaerythritol
Specifications
This Chemical is also sourced from China. Pentaerythritol is used in the manufacturing of Alkyd Resins and varnishes. Other uses include dialectic fluids of transformers, pyrotechnics etc.

Pre REACH Registration

MEKO
Specifications
Methyl Ethyl Ketoxime is (MEKO) is an essential chemical used as an anti-skinning agent in paints and lacquers, as a blocking-agent for isocyanate in polyurethanes, and in the manufacture of oxime silanes (that are used as cross linkers for silicone sealants). This Chemical is sourced out of India.
