Resin Resins are translucent and viscous film forming material widely used for production of paints and coatings. It binds the pigment particles to the substrate, forming a layer of film on the surface. The quality of the resin used in production of paints and coating decides the durability of the paint. Resins with different compositions are used depending upon the functional properties of the paint.
Functions of Resin
- To provide gloss and elasticity
- For the suspension of pigments
- To provide resistance to water, chemicals and abrasion
- Makes coating adhere to the surface
- Acts as a dispersant
- For drying properties
Our advanced resin manufacturing plants includes solvent based resin plants that can be used for production of paints, coatings, stains, and surface treating products. These solvent based resin plants have capacity upto 1.1 million gallon per year. The paint manufacturing plants can perform different operations including blending and mixing of raw materials, product testing and packaging & cleaning of vessels and lines. Optional facility for color separation is also available to meet the specific requirements of the customers.
There are separate tanks for mixing water base and solvent based tanks (from ranging 200- to 1000-gal capacity). Different material used in water based paints include water, latex, resins, extenders, and dispersed pigments. Similar type of material is used for solvent based paints, but in the mixture solvent replaces the water and latex. Other ingredients used in the base includes plasticizers, tints, and thinners.
After the final batch is ready, they are transferred to the let-down tanks. Additional water (or solvent), resins, preservatives, anti-foaming agents, thinners, and bactericides are added thereafter in the tanks. Batch testing of the products are performed at this stage. The series of test performed include checking color, viscosity and gloss. The material are then filtered and charged to cans for labeling, packaging, and shipping.
