dar-tech, inc., a specialty chemical and raw material distributor for more than 70 years, has become the official midwestern U.S. distributor for ZS Interpolymer, formerly Interpolymer, a division of German-based Zschimmer-Schwarz.
ZS Interpolymer’s manufacturing facilities in Louisville, Ky., and Canton, Mass., produce a range of SYNTRAN® water-based acrylic resin grades that can be used in a variety of coatings and graphic arts/ink applications.
Its acrylic technologies are unique because, in addition to conventional alkali-swellable and emulsion acrylics, its resins afford:
- dual self-crosslinking technology that gives superior water, stain and chemical resistance compared with traditional self-crosslinking acrylics
- anionic-cationic hybrid technology that gives cationic properties with anionic compatibilities, such as tannin blocking
- inherently matte acrylic technology, which is an acrylic-based liquid matting agent without the need for inorganic chemistry
- acrylic-olefin grafting technology that offers better stability than traditional olefin waxes.
