NEW HAPS Free Performance Resin - Evonik Tego


Until now, high-temperature resistant coatings were heat-cured at 200 – 250 °C after
application, forming a ready-to-handle surface. This disadvantage previously had to be
accepted by paint formulators. Evonik’s SILIKOPHEN® AC 950 technology solves this

The SILIKOPHEN® AC 950 ambient-cure technology eliminates the use of ovens and
enables painted objects to be touched, packaged, or exposed to the effects of water
(rain, fog) a short time after the coating is applied. Whereas previous oven-cure coatings
proved difficult to use on large objects (such as smokestacks and industrial plants),
the new ambient-cure technology allows for easier coating of these objects, thus prolonging
their operational life.
Advantages of SILIKOPHEN® AC 950:
• improved early water resistance
• end properties of the coating are obtained with ambient curing
• no hazardous substances emitted
• permanent temperature resistance up to 600 °C
• low smoke formation on exposure to high temperatures

New Green Friendly Products from Celanese


EcoVAE 401 is a vinyl acetate/ethylene emulsion designed for low odor paint applications. Paints utilizing the emulsion can be formulated without any coalescing solvents resulting in low VOC, environmentally-friendly products. EcoVAE 401 is also APE-free.


  • excellent scrub and stain resistance
  • APE-free
  • low odor
  • low VOC
  • very good wet edge
  • excellent film formation
  • low residual monomer content
  • ability to produce environmentally friendly coatings

EcoVAE 405 is formulated using vinyl acetate / ethylene technology along with state of the art manufacturing processes to deliver an environmentally-friendly binder that has superior scrub resistance, stain resistance, and pigment binding properties. When formulated with other appropriate raw materials, EcoVAE 405 is capable of producing coatings that are <5 g/L while being APE free. When using EcoVAE 405, coatings can be produced that meet consumers’ expectations for eco-friendly coatings.


  • APE-free
  • Low to Zero VOC capabilities
  • Low odor
  • Low residual monomer content
  • Excellent scrub and stain resistance
  • Very good wet edge
  • Excellent film formation

Avicor 381 polymer emulsion is a high scrub, formaldehyde-free vinyl acrylic designed to give superior performance in both interior and exterior paints. Its combination of high molecular weight, good film formation, flexibility and water resistance produces paint films with excellent toughness, scrub resistance, gloss and durability.
