Coatings and adhesives

Corbion sustainable solutions help create high-performing resins and coatings that also result in lower VOC systems and a reduced carbon footprint.

PURALACT® B3 for coating resins: Expect more!

The unique product properties of our monomer 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.
