Anti-corrosion coatings

Best in class binders for metal, anti-corrosion coatings

The failure to protect metal results in the monetary losses of billions annually. Synthomer technologies provide long-lasting metal protection helping you create anti-corrosion products that maintain both aesthetic appeal, and structural integrity. Our extensive range of water-based and solvent-borne resins provide specific protective attributes, including resistance to alkali (salt), corrosion, fire (intumescence), efflorescence and chemicals, as well as thermal insulation.

Synthomer binders also allow you to boost the environmental credentials of your products with resin-options including low-VOC and non-hazardous substances such as APEO and formaldehyde-free solutions.

Synthomer technologies can be applied as direct-to-metal all-in-one coating or as a primer application. They are ideal for use on steel frame constructions such as power pylons, marine, and ACE applications (agriculture, construction, and earth-moving equipment). Our binders will help you achieve anti-corrosion performance according to EN 12944-2 C 3-C 4, medium protection level (5 to 15 years) and can be applied at ambient or slightly forced temperatures.

Synthomer Metal Coatings portfolio

Synthomer has a wide range of water-based and solvent-borne resins including:

  • Lipaton™: Flexible and multifunctional, styrene-butadiene latex polymers that are often used for anti-corrosive primers and stone-chip protection of automotive and vehicular underbody applications.
  • Plextol™:  Versatile Veocryl technology uniting the advantages of VeoVa with ambient temperature self-crosslinking superiority for direct to metal applications 
  • Pliolite™: Styrene-acrylate copolymers used for protective metal and anti-carbonation applications.  
  • PlioTec™: Family of waterborne modified acrylate copolymer that provides superior water resistance and adhesion to a wide variety of substrates including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, ceramic tiles, PVC and more. 
  • Revacryl™: Styrene-acrylic dispersions for anti-corrosion primers featuring self-crosslinking properties, suitable for challenging metal surfaces such as galvanised steel.
