Polymers for Paints & Coatings

Paints & Coatings

Paints and coatings are used to protect substrates and provide required performance characteristics. The list of requirements for paints and coatings is broad and complex. Strength, flexibility, adhesion, and water resistance are just a few of the most common performance requirements. Meeting these requirements requires formulating with sophisticated polymers optimized for the specific application.

Rovene® and BarrierPro® polymer emulsions are designed for use in high-performance coatings. These products ensure outstanding performance in such applications as waterproofing, concrete coatings and sealers, external installation finishing systems (EIFS), running track, and elastomeric roof coatings.

With appropriate formulation, MCP latex polymers build strong, continuous films that provide excellent moisture vapor barrier properties, low water absorption rates, application at low temperatures, and adhesion to a variety of substrates.

Product Selection Guide


Paints & Coatings Systems



External Insulation Finishing Systems. These systems provide excellent performance in finishing the exterior of a structure.  Emulsion Polymers are used throughout this system.



Roofing shingles and elastomeric roof coatings use latex to protect homes and buildings all over the world.  MCP has many products to help customers create roofing products.


Recreational Surfaces

Running tracks, tennis courts, and playgrounds utilize emulsion polymers to bind resilient plastics or to provide protection to the recreational surface.


Tile & Stone Installation

Tile and Stone installation utilizes the value of emulsion polymers in producing tile mastics, water proofing membranes, and tile grouts and sealers.  



Automotive carpet, coatings to protect the car or reduce road noise & creating adhesives are a few of the many uses for synthetic emulsion polymers in the automotive industry.
