A New Opaque Polymer from Rohm and Haas

Cost savings and high performanCe in both Water and solvent -borne arChiteCtural paints

Since its introduction by Rohm and Haas over 25 years ago, ropaqueTM opaque polymer technology has undergone significant improvements thanks to continuous research and development efforts. This work has provided an unrivalled understanding of the principle of hiding technology, not only in the design of polymer particles but also in the manufacturing process, ensuring a consistently high quality production. Further developments in technology and formulation know-how now permit the reformulation of alkyd based paints ­ whilst maintaining the established benefits and advantages of using opaque polymer.

Key Characteristics:

· Enables compliance with European VOC regulations in solvent formulations. · Retains opacity in presence of common solvents used in alkyd paints. · Resists aliphatic solvents and mixtures containing up to 6% aromatic content. · Lower TiO2 level in formulation thus reducing cost while maintaining hiding performance. · Distinctive whiteness/higher brightness. · Lower yellowing effect of solvent paint. · Can be also used in waterborne formulations with similar performance of RopaqueTM Ultra E. · Premium performance in the category of opaque technology.
