MELCROSS 16       

Commercial name


Mixed ether type resin


MELCROSS-16 is designed as a Mixed methyl-iso-butyl type with methoxy and butoxy functionality.

More fully alkylated coetherified resin, resulting in very low molecular weight and low viscosity at 98%up solids. Designed for low VOC, high solids coatings. The highly monomeric nature plus low tendency for self-condensation contribute to excellent flexibility. Butoxy groups provide for good adhesion, flow, and leveling. Very low free formaldehyde, the balance of monomeric /oligomeric species in MELCROSS-16 contributes to the cure response of high solids coatings, especially at reduced temperatures.

So, you can get both benefit from the property of methylation and butylation by this resin in one formulation.
