DSM Coating Resins
Solid performance in solvents
Solventborne resin technologies
Despite society’s clear need to move to more sustainable coating technologies, the reality is that (today at least) there’s still a place for solventborne systems in the coating industry – for example in ink resins for flexible food packaging, where solventborne technologies are currently the only ones capable of meeting the necessary drying requirements.
In which case, our team and the toolbox behind them do everything possible to minimize the effect of solvents and VOCs on people and our environment during the manufacturing process – by recycling coating solvents into energy for use in curing ovens. We’re convinced that one day we’ll have a 100% sustainable coatings industry. Until that day arrives, we’re solidly behind making solvents as safe as possible.
