Vertellus Specialties Introduces Two New Polycin Polyol Products

INDIANAPOLIS, April 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Vertellus Specialty Materials, a
division of Vertellus Specialties and a leading supplier to the coatings and
sealants industry, will introduce two new Polycin® polyols at the American
Coatings Show in Atlanta, Georgia, April 8 – 10.

The products, Polycin® XP – 100 LV and Polycin® XP – 200 LV, have excellent
utility in industrial coatings applications and allow coatings formulators the
ability to increase solids and lower VOCs without sacrificing other key
performance characteristics.

“One serious drawback to solvent borne acrylic urethane coatings is the high
level of VOCs, which are required to allow them to have good application
characteristics,” says Dr. Tim Miller, Technical Director at Vertellus
Specialties. “The Polycin® polyol line from Vertellus is generally used as a
reactive diluent in SB acrylic urethane coatings. Polycin® XP 100 LV and
Polycin® XP 200 LV were developed to assist in meeting lower VOC targets in high
solid coatings,” Miller adds.

Key features of Vertellus’ Polycin® XP – 100 LV and Polycin® XP – 200 LV:
– 100% solids
– Low Viscosity and Excellent Viscosity Reducing Power
– Moisture Resistance
– Excellent Compatibility with Acrylic Resins
– Good Chemical Resistance
– Good Film Hardness
– Excellent Pigment Wetting
– Renewable

Miller will be a featured speaker at the conference’s Polyurethanes II session,
and will speak on “New Reactive Diluents for 2K Solvent Borne Polyurethane
Coatings” on April 8th at 2 p.m. in room C205.

“We hope attendees walk away with a better understanding of our new offerings at
Vertellus and stop by our booth to have further discussions about these and
other products,” Miller says. “Vertellus offers a full range of polyols and we
feel the market will be excited to learn of these two newly developed Polycins®

Vertellus representatives will be at Booth #2225 at the conference to answer any
