PUdaily, Shanghai —— Hexion Inc. ("Hexion" or the "Company") announced a collaboration with Poland-based D&R Dispersions and Resins Sp. z o.o. to produce VeoVa™ Silane resins on a commercial scale, which gives paint producers and formulators direct access to this unique technology. The VeoVa Silane systems are free of isocyanates and provide the ability to balance hardness and flexibility, pot life and cure speed.

    Hexion’s patented VeoVa Silane technology enables the creation of cost-effective, high-performance, moisture-curable resins. The use of economic vinyl silane monomers delivers a cost-effective coating solution when compared to acrylic- and epoxy-polysiloxane technologies. Ultimately, VeoVa Silane binders offer affordable and high-performance protective solutions for many end-markets and applications, such as marine, protective and wood coatings.

    Since its introduction in 2019, the Company has been developing the VeoVa Silane technology and demand has grown quickly for this unique technology. The collaboration with D&R Dispersions and Resins offers strategic manufacturing capabilities in Eastern Europe to meet the resin production needs for specialty applications.

    "Collaborating with D&R Dispersions and Resins enables Hexion’s Versatic Acids and Derivatives Group to offer paint producers direct access to this unique technology, as Hexion only supplies the monomers," said Jeroen Jansema, Vice President and General Manager, Versatic Acids & Derivatives. "The exclusive combination of high-performance, fast curing and the absence of isocyanates drives our customers’ enthusiasm about this technology."

    "We see this new and unique technology as a real breakthrough in the resin industry, and we are honored to work with Hexion to make this resin available to the coatings industry," said Arkadiusz Kowalczyk, Vice President D&R Dispersions and Resins. "We are continuously exploring alternative monomeric raw materials and technologies; this collaboration allows us to create truly innovative and sustainable binder solutions for the coatings industry."
