Binders for superior low-emission indoor paints

Synthomer sets new standards in performance with an extended range of low-VOC binders for indoor paints that meet the industry’s increasingly demanding environmental standards without compromising on application properties or durability. Our acrylic and vinyl copolymer dispersions are low-VOC, low-odour and APEO-free. The majority of them are compliant with the relevant eco-labels such as RAL UZ 102 “Blue Angel”. In addition, they offer outstanding pigment-binding capacity and allow you to create highly filled cost-efficient formulations that require less TiO2 to achieve excellent hiding according to EN 13300 class 1 or 2.

  • Broad range of acrylic and vinyl copolymer dispersions to cater for your precise requirements.
  • High scrub resistance means your paints will be easy to clean and will maintain their appearance.
  • APEO-free for environmentally-responsible paints.
  • Low-odour and low-VOC for a healthy and attractive indoor environment.
  • High durability means your customers will appreciate the quality of your paints.
  • Formulate products compliant with Blue Angel regulations.

Group Tradename Chemistry Description
DURAMUL DURAMUL 1000 PA Duramul™ 1000 self-cross-linking acrylic emulsion is designed specifically to be formulated as a sealer for interior and exterior substrates. It will not blush or water spot after 3 - 4 days curing at room temperature.
DURAMUL DURAMUL 1533 PA Duramul 1533 acrylic emulsion produces a tough flexible film which is designed to cater for a wide range of architectural and industrial uses. It is suitable for use in coatings applied to timber, concrete and some plastics. Being a 100% acrylic copolymer, it resists yellowing and has excellent adhesion, surface hardness, gloss, water and alkali resistance, and exterior durability. 
DURAMUL DURAMUL 2600 PA Duramul™  2600 acrylic emulsion produces a tough flexible film, which is specifically designed for use as a sealant in the manufacture of concrete roof tiles. Being a 100% acrylic copolymer, it resists yellowing and it has excellent adhesion, surface hardness, gloss, water and alkali resistance, and exterior durability. 
DURAMUL DURAMUL 854 PA Duramul™  854 has been developed as a medium hard acrylic for fishing net coatings and decorative paint applications onto masonry. With a little added co-solvent it will film form at room temperature. It forms hard, glossy and abrasion resistant films and has excellent resistance to weathering, water and alkalis. Can be blended with Duramul 853 if a softer film is required. 
DURAMUL DURAMUL 856 PA Duramul™ 856 self cross-linking acrylic emulsion has been specially developed for use in interior and exterior decorative coatings onto masonry. It provides premium quality adhesion, leveling and whitening when used as a binding medium for paints. Films are tough, adhesive and very flexible with excellent resistance to weathering, water and alkalis. In addition it offers excellent scrub resistance and is non-yellowing. 
DURAMUL DURAMUL 865 PA DURAMUL 865 has been specially designed for use on asbestos fibre cement and concrete roof tiles. It is a hard emulsion requiring higher level of co-solvent to achieve film properties at ambient temperature that can be used in concrete masonry coatings. Being a 100% acrylic copolymer it resists yellowing and has excellent weathering resistance, adhesion, surface hardness, gloss, water and alkali resistance.
DURAMUL DURAMUL PR 3500 PA DURAMUL PR3500 is an aqueous dispersion of acrylic copolymer with an ultrafine particle size. It has been specially developed for use as a primer for preparing porous masonry and timber surfaces for finishing coating. Due to its low film forming temperature and adherent films, primed surfaces are smooth and “keyed in” for the final decorative coating.
DURASOL DURASOL 330 ACR Durasol™330 is a thermoplastic acrylic resin solution specially developed in a ready-to-use, low odour version for use particularly in enclosed areas where solvent odour build-up would normally be a problem. It provides a hard, yet flexible film, though films will generally have poorer weathering and UV resistance compared with products manufactured in aromatic solvents, such as xylene. Applications include interior and exterior clear coatings and pigmented finishes for protecting concrete and masonry, slate sealers and coatings for pavers. 
DURASOL DURASOL 810 ACR Durasol™  810 is an acrylic copolymer solution developed and designed for use in both interior and exterior clear or pigmented coatings onto concrete. It produces a hard, very flexible film with excellent resistance to water, alkalis and contains a UV absorber to improve protection against UV light. The product is supplied as a 50% solution in white spirit (LAWS) and xylene.
