Environmental Consciousness through "Water Borne" Resins That Are Earth and Human-Friendly
Water Borne Resins
Resin Dispersed in Water for Reducing Air Pollution
Paints and adhesives, coating agents, protective films, and all sorts of adhesion for plastics... Epoxy resin and urethane resin are actively used in a variety of contexts.Although many organic solvents have traditionally been used because of their durability and low cost, ADEKA is now working on the development of aqueous resins, which are friendly to human bodies and the environment, owing to concerns about air pollution and damage to human health.
"Water borne resins are materials with plastic-like properties." Put simply, these are "Water borne resins." The advantage to these is that they are non-hazardous materials. And through our proprietary technology the functional capacity unique to resins (polymers) can be furnished simply by volatizing water. They have been garnering attention as a resin that is gentle on the earth (does not pollute the atmosphere) and the human body (countermeasures against sick house syndrome), while also preserving the performance of organic solvent-based resins and improving upon their anticorrosion properties, pliability, and weather resistance.
Combining Technical Know-how Cultivated over Many Years
On the technological side, uniformly dispersing resin in water is difficult.
ADEKA has combined its diverse technical know-how cultivated over many years; sought to discover optimal conditions from the perspective of the combination method, temperature, and stirred state; and promotes research and development before the commercialization of products. We are currently beginning to develop into broad areas through our VOC* countermeasure goods and environmentally conscious products.
By placing considerations for the global environment and human body first and foremost, ADEKA hereafter continue raising production techniques for water borne resins.
