DSM Coating Resins
Solid performance in solvents
Solventborne resin technologies
Despite society’s clear need to move toward more sustainable coating technologies, the reality is that, for now at least, there’s still a place for solventborne systems in the coating industry – for example in ink resins for flexible food packaging, where only solventborne technologies are currently capable of meeting the necessary drying requirements.
When working with solventborne systems, our team, leveraging DSM’s unique toolbox, does 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.
