Elvacite® 4115

Elvacite® 4115 is a methacrylate resin that is used in alkyd coating systems in order to reduce drying time, improve color, and increase stability.
Product Overview
Elvacite® 4115 is a thermoplastic acrylic resin that is compatible with long, medium, and short chain alkyd resins.
It is available as a free-flowing solid bead that is soluble in white spirits, ketones, aromatics, esters, and glycol ethers.
When added to alkyd systems, Elvacite® 4115 reduces cure time, improves color, and enhances UV stability.
Elvacite® 4115 is an ideal film former for solvent based coatings for steel surfaces.
