To capture the challenges of today and anticipate the ambitious requirements for tomorrow‘s customers, we are continuously raising expectations in terms of performance, aspect and durability.

Arkema Coating Resins provides a large range of waterborne binders used in many applications like architectural coatings, industrial coatings, building and construction, and textile, nonwovens and leather.

Waterborne binders are designed to meet specific requirements such as chemical resistance, water resistance, mechanical and chemical properties, durability, and abrasion resistance.

Coating Resins offer a large range of products to meet your sustainability goals: Low or ultra-low VOC, no APEO, no formaldehyde releaser, Ecolabel, and OEKO-Tex.

Our chemistries

Acrylics

Coating Resins put its expertise with monomers integration into the development of acrylic binders based on different technologies such as dispersion polymers, solution polymers and post-emulsified polymers. Our various monomers (including acrylic, methacrylic esters or acids, methacrylic acids, and special monomers), reinforce the performance of polymers and will raise your expectations in terms of performance, aspect and durability.

Our brands: ENCOR®, SNAP®, SYNAQUA®

ENCOR® is a range of pure acrylic binders and styrene acrylics binders developed to perform well in architectural coatings, building and construction coatings, low VOC and SVOC applications, industrial coatings in 1K or 2K systems, and in textile and nonwovens with thermoplastic, self-crosslinking or thermoset polymers.

The unique technology platform of SNAP® includes acrylic dispersion that offers exceptional performance in architectural coatings at zero or very low VOC levels, including outstanding gloss and excellent block resistance.

SYNAQUA® is a world-class range of acrylic post-emulsified waterborne systems, to reach very low VOC (below 150 g/l) while keeping the advantages of solventborne systems including high gloss, water and chemical resistance, good durability and quick hardness development.

Active in markets:  Architectural, building and construction, industrial, textile and nonwovens
