Short oil alkyd resins have an oil content of less than 40%. The main advantage of short oil alkyd resins is the excellent drying time. They are mostly used in industrial paints, Anti-corrosive primers, and applications that need a good drying time.
Alkyd resin is a polyester with a monovalent fatty acid in its structure. Oil length is defined as the weight percentage of fatty acid contained in the total Alkyd Resin. Based on oil chain length, ArChem Alkyd Resins can be classified into 3 categories as short oil alkyd resin, medium oil alkyd resin, and long oil alkyd resin. Alkyd resins are used in various industries such as construction paints, inks, furnace paints, automotive paints, etc.
Oil length is an important factor in determining the qualities of an alkyd resin. The more unsaturated the fatty acid, the shorter it takes for the coating to dry. Short Oil Alkyd Resins are commonly used in combination with nitrocellulose resins, urea formaldehyde, or melamine formaldehyde in the manufacture of stove paints. Depending on the type of oil used in the structure of alkyd resin, they are used for different purposes. These resins add properties such as adhesion, resistance, and flexibility to secondary resins that mix with them.
Short oil alkyd resins are soluble in strong solvents like xylene or toluene and have very limited compatibility with aliphatic solvents. they have good compatibility with other short oil resins, amino resins and nitrocellulose. Some advantages of short oil alkyd resins include:
ArChem Short Oil Alkyd Resins are produced based on drying oils such as soybean oil or non-drying oils like coconut and linseed. They are used in various industries such as the automotive industry, to produce paint for metal surfaces and in the production of plasticizer agents for the protection of external building structures.
Compared to most alkyds, ArChem Short Oil Alkyd Resins have superior durability and corrosion resistance. Some of ArChem Short Oil Alkyd Resin uses include:
Storage conditions of ArChem Short Oil Alkyd Resins are listed below:
Inhalation exposure of vapors at higher concentrations may cause irritation of the nose, throat & respiratory tract. Plus, Prolonged or repeated contact with the skin may cause slight irritation. Some of the necessary first-aid measures are described below:
Operators should use it in a well-ventilated area if the product is handled hot. They should also Avoid breathing mist or vapors from heated material. It is necessary to avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing.
The percentage of fatty acids in the short oil alkyd resins is less than 40 percent. These fatty acids act as the modifying agents in the resins.
Short oil alkyd resins are used in air-drying primers for wood or metal, floor enamels, machinery enamels, traffic paints, and industrial paints.
Alkyd resins are classified according to the percentage of fatty acids in the resin. Short oil alkyds contain <30% fatty acids, medium oil alkyds between 45 and 55%, and long oil alkyds >55%.
The HS Code of short oil Alkyd Resin is 39075000.
The CAS Number of short oil Alkyd Resin is 63148-69-6.
