The inks and coatings bio breakthrough we've all been waiting for
The print and packaging industry is constantly seeking materials which offer a lower level of VOCs and carbon emissions as these will help brand owners to fulfil their sustainability pledges.
With the SP-6400XP – part of DSM’s Decovery® plant-based resin technology for the creation of adhesives, primers, inks and topcoats – DSM is helping brand owners to take a significant step towards meeting their environmental and sustainability pledges while also moving towards fully bio-based solutions.
When it comes to coating solutions, it’s hard to look beyond the resin. It’s the engine of a coating, the backbone of a lacquer, the heart and soul of a paint or ink.
Over the years, our innovations in high-performance resin technologies have made a real difference to the way coating solutions perform, look and feel for our customers – and their customers.
At DSM, our technology toolbox is broader than any you will find. Most importantly, our bright science is supported by a global team with the insight and experience to bind it all together. Much like a resin, in fact. The result? Increasingly sustainable coating solutions that benefit people, planet and profit – both today and in the future.
No matter how tough the challenge, we’ve got you covered – wherever you are in the world. That’s our binding commitment to you.
Markets & Applications
From building & construction to optical fiber coatings optics for the telecoms industry; to (flexible) packaging and furniture to vehicles; and from consumer goods to general industrial applications (like ACE), our sustainable resins are proven to perform – and so is the knowledgeable team behind them…
Our technology toolbox is one of the most extensive in the coating industry, covering waterborne and powder resins, solvent- and water-based polyester resins, solventborne and solid acrylics resins, as well as UV-curing, UV LED cure, and innovative plant-based technologies. Whatever you need, our technical team will help you determine the best binder technology for your paint or ink.
The team at DSM brings a deep understanding of substrates, their properties, and how to get the very best from them – whether you’re using wood, metal, plastic, optical fiber, paper and board, leathers, textiles, or concrete and asphalt.
Sustainability is a popular but often misused word. At DSM, it’s a value that lies at the heart of everything we do. Specifically, it means creating products that safeguard human health, that lower carbon footprint and tackle climate change, and that minimize our use of precious resources. With our growing portfolio of coating resins, we’re well on the way to achieving all of these objectives.
