There are two main reasons for applying a coating to paper or board; to provide resistance to grease, oil or water, and to enhance appearance.
It is recommended for use in paper and paperboard coatings where a high degree of grease, oil and water resistance is needed, along with good flexibility. It works well in applications where excellent water vapor transmission resistance is needed, such as paperboard coatings, as well as interior primer sealers and paper. When appearance is the higher priority, consider using one of MCP's styrene acrylic polymers.
Rovene 4100 is a styrene-butadiene emulsion polymer recommended for use for boxboard coating, in some publication grade papers and in the adhesive industry.
Tykote 1004 is a low surfactant styrene-butadiene emulsion polymer designed as a base resin for functional coatings. Tykote 1004 can be used to compound functional coatings exhibiting superior water, water vapor, oil and grease repellency.
Rovene 4119 is a styrene-butadiene emulsion recommended for use in paper and paperboard coatings where excellent water vapor transmission resistance is needed.
Tykote 1019 is a carboxylated styrene-butadiene emulsion that has a firm hand with excellent film strength properties. It is intended for use as a base polymer in the formulation of barrier coatings for paper and paperboard packaging.
Tykote 1005 is a styrene-butadiene emulsion polymer designed for use in functional barrier coatings requiring excellent water resistance.
Rovene 4111 is a high glass transition temperature styrene-butadiene emulsion designed to provide additional opacity in inks, specifically inks formulated with titanium dioxide.
Rovene 4106 is a carboxylated, styrene-butadiene emulsion that can be used to enhance gloss on coated printing papers and paperboard.
