Momentive to Showcase VeoVa™ and Cardura™ Monomers at 2012 PAINT INDIA


Columbus, OH – January 18, 2012 – Momentive Specialty Chemicals, a global leader in specialty chemicals and materials, will showcase its VeoVa™ vinyl ester monomer and Cardura™ glycidyl ester monomer at the 2012 Paint India Coatings show February 23-25, 2012 in Mumbai, India. VeoVa and Cardura are unique monomers for low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emulsions and coatings for a wide variety of decorative and industrial applications. VeoVa vinyl ester monomer is used in emulsions for both decorative and industrial paints, such as wood, metal and concrete applications, where hydrophobicity, hydrolytic stability, adhesion and ultraviolet resistance are required. Cardura glycidyl ester is a key ingredient in resins for environmentally advanced coatings, such as clear coats for automotive refinish, coil coatings and marine coatings where high solid formulations and low VOCs are desired. For the paint applicator, Cardura-based coatings offer the benefits of improved flow and leveling. For the resin producer, Cardura glycidyl ester provides an easier, more controlled manufacturing route to high solid content, low viscosity acrylic polyols. Momentive scientists will deliver a paper entitled “VeoVa™ Vinyl Ester-based Latices with High Binding Power for Interior Matte Paints.” Product information will also be available at the Momentive booth located in Hall 1 B14.
