PURALACT® B3 for coating resins: Expect more!

The unique product properties of our monomor PURALACT® B3 boost resin and coating performance in areas like scratch resistance and adhesion - while lowering the resin viscosity in solvent borne systems at the same time, for lower VOC systems with reduced carbon footprint. With PURALACT® B3, resin formulators can expect excellent and durable coating aesthetics.

Corbion is bringing an answer to the demand for sustainable, high performance and   cost-effective raw materials with renewable building block: PURALACT B3

PURALACT® B3 is a unique, high purity bio-based cyclic di-ester monomer derived from sugar fermentation that can be incorporated in almost any resin that contains monomers with free hydroxyl end groups. PURALACT® B3 can be used in polycondensation  as well as ring-opening polymerization reactions.

Corbion’s PURALACT B3 can be incorporated in coating resins, in a cost competitive manner, using existing production processes
