Cost Reduction Options Explored for Construction Products as World of Concrete 2018 Approaches

Jan 7, 2018 9:46:00 PM

In 2018, cost and performance will continue to be a focus in the construction industry. One key factor for polymers is that MMA supply will continue to be short, driving costs of all acrylic polymers higher. Mallard Creek Polymers (MCP) has a strong line of all acrylic, cement stable products that have been customized based on Rovene® 6023 (improved water resistance) and Rovene 403 (low odor grade) for use in many customer systems. The latest all acrylic product from the company, Rovene 6525, was brought to market in October 2017. In 2018, though, the company’s focus will be on introducing more products based on styrene. Because MMA will be much more costly than styrene, the company is looking for industry partners to help develop lower cost alternatives where an all acrylic polymer is not needed. Using styrene acrylic emulsion polymers will meet the demands for exterior durability in most applications. Styrene-butadiene latex provides superior adhesion and water resistance when UV stability is not required.
