Product Overview
Elvacite® 2041 is an acrylic resin based on poly methyl methacrylate (PMMA). It has a very high molecular weight that provides the films it produces outstanding abrasion resistance, blocking resistance, and slip. Elvacite® 2041 is ideal for low solids coatings that produce highly durable films such as spray lacquers. Elvacite® 2041 is a non reactive resin. This makes it useful for altering and controlling viscosity of reactive coating systems. Because of it exceptional hardness, Elvacite® 2041 is only suited to be used in coatings and adhesives for rigid substrates like wood, metal, and vinyl.
