Wood expands and contracts in response to temperature and humidity changes, making wood coatings a challenge. What’s more, those coatings are essential to protect the wood from damaging moisture penetration. That’s why wood coatings need flexibility and water resistance. Hardness is also useful, as is block resistance to prevent coated surfaces from sticking to one another. Outdoor applications often benefit from protection against the UV light that causes degradation.
MCP has developed both styrene acrylic and carboxylated styrene-butadiene polymers for coating wood substrates. An area where MCP products have demonstrated outstanding performance is in the OSB edge-seal coatings within the Construction market.
Ecronova® 6608 is an ambient cure, pure acrylic emulsion that incorporates excellent block and alkaline resistance and extraordinary wet adhesion with minimal water absorption.
Ecronova® 6620 is an ambient cure acrylic polymer with excellent UV stablity that is is recommended for exterior paints and plasters with low dirt pick-up.
Rovene 6133 is a styrene-acrylic emulsion polymer designed to work in a variety of coatings applications including interior, exterior, clear or pigmented.
Rovene 4002 is a medium-firm, carboxylated styrene-butadiene emulsion designed to have good freeze-thaw stability and low odor characteristics, when used in trade sales coatings.
Rovene 4011 is a carboxylated styrene-butadiene polymer for coatings and construction applications requiring excellent water resistance.
BarrierPro 4545 is a styrene-butadiene emulsion polymer of medium to high stiffness. It dries to form a flexible, tough film of high water resistance.
Rovene 4546 is a general purpose styrene-butadiene emulsion polymer of medium to high stiffness. It dries to form a flexible, tough film of high water resistance.
Rovene 4541 is carboxylated styrene-butadiene emulsion recommended in applications that require high strength and water resistance.
