ZS Interpolymer, formerly Interpolymer, is a division of Zschimmer-Schwarz, headquartered in Germany. With domestic manufacturing in Louisville, Ky., and Canton, Mass., it offers a well-established resin portfolio for coatings, graphic arts, and adhesives manufacturers on a primary formulation level.
In addition to conventional alkali-swellable and emulsion acrylics, ZS Interpolymer offers four unique acrylic technologies:
- dual self-crosslinking technology gives superior water, stain and chemical resistance compared to traditional self-crosslinking acrylics
- anionic-cationic hybrid technology gives cationic properties with anionic compatibilities, such as tannin blocking
- inherently matte acrylic technology is an acrylic-based liquid matting agent without the need for inorganic chemistry
- acrylic-olefin grafting technology offers better stability than traditional olefin waxes
