Focus on water based resins...

Working with world class supplies allows our Brenntag Coatings & Constructions team to offer a full range of innovative resins for water based and solvated applications, dispersing agents and all rheology modifiers. We would particularly like to highlight the unique water based resins from Dow:


MAINCOTE™ AF-400 is designed for 1K water-borne floor paints, the product offers very good film performance for light duty flooring. It provides good and quick adhesion on concrete, fast drying time, and excellent hot tyre pick up resistance. MAINCOTE™ AF-400 has great formulation versatility from matt to high gloss paint, clear or pigmented.


The many advantages of the product include:


  • Fast drying time
  • Fast Koenig Hardness development
  • Improved chemical resistance compared to commercial paints
  • Early, high tyre pick up resistance for DIY garage floor coatings
  • Excellent, quick adhesion to concrete


DOW Formashield™ technology offers binders such as Primal™ SF-208 ER for interior paints capable of abating formaldehyde levels without emitting any hazardous components. Products formulated with the resin are low VOC paints with good film performance. Primal™ SF-208 ER is for high quality coatings that purify the air we breathe; ideal for children’s bedrooms or living rooms.Along with these resins, Dow’s extensive range of Rheology modifiers help improve the feel, appearance, flow and levelling of your paint. In the Acrysol range Dow have developed a unique acid suppression technology which means the products have very low viscosity and so are easily added to the paint production process, less waste is left in the drum and activated by pH.
