Polycup crosslinking resins are formaldehyde-free, water-based resins that are reactive with amine, carboxyl, hydroxyl and thiol functionality. They promote water resistance in polymer systems that are typically water-soluble or water-sensitive. Polycup resins are commonly used to produce filtration media, cellulose meat casings, adhesives, inks and top-coatings.
The environmentally friendly resins also impart toughness to formulations and improve adhesion to low surface energy substrates. They’re a safe and environmentally responsible alternative to traditional crosslinking resins; Polycup resins contain no formaldehyde, VOCs, APEs/NPEs or SARA 313 components.
Polycup resins provide benefits such as:
Polycup resins are available for industrial, indirect food contact and direct food contact applications. When you plan to use polymer resins, keep these considerations in mind:
