Allnex Introduces Advanced Performances Of MACRYNAL™ Waterborne Dispersions


Shanghai, China, October 16, 2014 – Allnex introduced today the new performances of its 2 component (2K) MACRYNAL ™ VSM 2521w and VSM 6299w waterborne dispersions from its acrylic resin range. These waterborne dispersions show improved performance that is as good as 2K acrylic solventborne (2K) polyurethanes. The dispersions provide very good compatibility and mixability with a wide range of solvent free hydrophilized polyisocyanates. They are easily hand mixed when mechanical agitation is not available during application. Resultant coatings from these dispersions give high gloss and excellent chemical and block resistance.

Allnex’s MACRYNAL ™ VSM 2521w and VSM 6299w, which are well-known for their high quality clear coat and top coat performances like drying properties and hardness, are now improved with a new offering of good hand mixability with hydrophilic polyisocyanates. It aids in overcoming problems with inconsistent quality that frequently occur when mechanical mixing is not available during application.

Allnex’s Regional Business Director, Mr Jeremy Qi said, “With the increasing need to protect our environment, the advanced performances of these waterborne dispersions are a welcomed change that enables businesses to switch from solventborne to waterborne options in compliance with regulatory needs without sacrificing quality and performance.”

Allnex will introduce these new developments at its presentation entitled, “Advanced Performances of Waterborne 2K Polyurethane Coatings with Second Generation Hydroxylated Acrylic Dispersion” at the Paint & Coatings Industry Annual Conference on Waterborne Coatings on 27 & 28 October at Jinan, Shandong. Product details are available on
