Global Alkyd Resin Market Information: By Type (Oil Based, Modified, Water Reducible, Others) End-Use Industry (Building & Construction, Automotive, Industrial, Furniture, Others) Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East & Africa)- Forecast Till 2023
With a history of proven performance in architectural and industrial coatings and the ability to adhere to less-than-ideally prepared substrates, alkyd resins have remained at the forefront of coating technology for well over 50 years.
"The new Tufcote series of acrylic alkyd and VT alkyd products will be yet another cost-effective solution that adds value for our customers who require an economy industrial coating."
In situations where National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) permissible exposure limits (PELs) for HDI isocyanates cannot be exceeded, (5d) or where the use of isocyanates is prohibited, the exterior of Navy and Marine Corps aircraft are painted with a MIL-PRF-81352C (6) (Aircraft Touch-Up) 1K topcoat, such as an acrylic or alkyd. Unfortunately, these technologies offer only short-term exterior color stability and hydrocarbon resistance compared to PU.
Alkyd resins can be modified with many other resins or chemicals, and these modifications affect the final properties of the alkyd resins [8].
Diminution trend in gloss value, ex-corporation of inhibitors on the coating surface plus depletion of morphological features witnessed through SEM micrographs and curtailment of ester linkage signals in FTIR spectrum, concluded that an insignificant protection offered by the alkyd triplex coating due to its permeability upon weathering which led to ex-capsulation of inhibitors under moist conditions.
Solvent-based alkyd resins are polyesters modified with oils or fatty acids.
A generation ago, an experienced painter's first choice for achieving a super-smooth surface on cabinets and trim would have been an oil-based alkyd paint, not a water-based acrylic latex.
While all alkyd paints (oil paints with alkyd resins) will yellow to some extent over time, CCI provides this list of tips:
Fatty acids with potential for conversion to alkyd resins have been obtained from various plants as reported by Emelugo et al.
For instance, although most coatings had better water repellency performance on CCA and uncoated wood in comparison with copper amine--treated woods, Coating 9 (alkyd, solvent-based) performed well on all treatments.
In particular, air-drying solventborne alkyd paints need to meet increasingly stringent emission limits and often must be reformulated with suitable exempt solvents or reactive diluents to achieve volatile organic compound (VOC) reduction.
Most aging steel bridges are covered with one of two types of coating systems: (1) a two-coat system with an alkyd primer and topcoat (both coats could contain lead or just the prime coat) and (2) a two-coat system with an inorganic zinc (IOZ)-rich primer and a vinyl topcoat.
