Elvacite® 2013 Elvacite®2013 is a unique acrylic resin that also complies with compositional requirements of the FDA. Elvacite®2013 is softer than the methyl methacrylate grades. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 2014 Medium molecular weight methyl methacrylate copolymer; the softest and most flexible of the copolymer grades and provides great pigment wetting. Elvacite® 2014 also has a wide range of resin compatibility. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 2028 Elvacite® 2028 has a low molecular weight therefore making it broad in solubility and compatibility. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 2550 Medium molecular weight methacrylate copolymer resin providing excellent adhesion to metal and good flexibility. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 2552C Elvacite® 2552C is specifically designed for transportation finishes such as automotive, motorcycle and bikes. It can be used as a high clear topcoat in multiple coats or as a binder in high gloss base coats SDS TDS
Elvacite® 2614 A low odor version of Elvacite® 2013. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 2669 Elvacite® 2669 is a water soluble methacrylate copolymer that can be dissolved in slightly alkaline aqueous solutions. Due to it's characteristics, it's often used where solvent emissions need to be minimized. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 2697 Elvacite® 2697 is useful in clear, translucent or pigmented metal lacquers. It is a fast dissolving, low viscosity resin for lacquer and toner use. Elvacite® 2697 is non-reactive for use in reactive systems. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 2927 Thermoplastic acrylic resin with controlled molecular architecture. The technology has been developed with a VOC limit target of 3.5 lb./gal. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 4021 Elvacite® 4021 is a non-reactive for use in reactive systems. SDS TDS*
Elvacite® 4026 Elvacite® 4026 is often used with "passive" resins such as Elvacite® 2028, 2013, and 2927. Traditional characteristics of "passive" resins can be retained while seeing additional benefits from Elvacite® 4026. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 4028 Elvacite® 4028 is a methacrylate copolymer for use in inks, finishing lacquers and plastic coatings. Often used as a general purpose grade as it has a good balance of properties. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 4036 Methacrylate copolymer with improved adhesion to polyolefin substrates. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 4044 Elvacite® 4044 is a medium weight butyl methacrylate / methyl methacrylate. It's often used as a general purpose grade with FDA compliance. SDS TDS*
Elvacite® 4048 Often used with ceramic printing ink applications and varnishes due to it's excellent solubility in various solvents. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 4055 Methacrylate copolymer designed for pigment dispersion. Elvacite® 4055 can be used with typical acrylic, alkyd and epoxy resins. SDS* TDS
Elvacite® 4059 Similar to Elvacite® 4026 but particularly useful where high solubility or compatibility with a range of monomers is required. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 4067 Solid acrylic bead resin that has been designed to give good solubility in white spirit for use in combinations with alkyd resins. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 4115 Methacrylate copolymer designed to give good solubility in white spirit or use with alkyd resins. Elvacite® 4115 also complies with TSCA and EINECS. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 4144 Solid bead polymer resin based on methyl methacrylate, n-butyl methacrylate and methacrylic acid. SDS TDS*
Elvacite® 4188 Elvacite® 4188 is specifically engineered for for systems where improved adhesion is required for difficult metal substrates. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 4331 Solvent-free methacrylate copolymer resin, with excellent compatibility and water-white clarity. Suitable for preparation of universal pigment pastes, this resin yields a lower solution viscosity compared to similar products, allowing for heavier pigment loading. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 4402 Hydroxyl-functional, methacrylate copolymer for use in thermoset coatings and adhesives. Specifically used in environmentally friendly formulations. SDS TDS
Elvacite® 4412 Solid methyl methacrylate copolymer bead resin. Can be used as the main binder or in combination with other resins. SDS TDS*
Elvacite® 75 Medium molecular weight methyl methacraylate copolymer. Elvacite® 75 is compatible with Elvacite® 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013, 2021, 2041, and 2051. SDS TDS
