What is Medium Oil Alkyd Resin?


Alkyd Resins are thermoplastic polyester resins that contain drying oils and are formed with three essential components:  fatty acids, polyols, and dibasic acids. they are classified into three categories based on their oil chain lengths:

  • Long oil alkyd resins with oil lengths greater than 60.
  • Medium oil alkyd resins with oil lengths between 40 and 60.
  • Short oil alkyd resins with oil lengths shorter than 40.

Medium oil alkyd resins have some of the same properties as Long Oil alkyd resins and Short Oil alkyd resins. They have quick-drying characteristics and high gloss.
