Knowing deeply about the saturated polyester resins

15-May-2017 | Zion Market Research

Polyester indicates to a collection of polymers resulting from the concentration of an acid and a polyol. The polyester system is enhanced than alkyd system when it comes to gloss retention, weather resistance, good adhesion, and high hardness thus bolstering the global saturated polyester resins market.

Polyester can be bifurcated into saturated polyester and unsaturated polyester.

Unsaturated polyester resin, created via concentration generally by the unsaturated diols & saturated dicarboxylic acid or unsaturated diols & diacid, has unsaturated double bonds and ester in the major chain of linear polymers.

Saturated polyester is an artificial material that does not has bonds, which are unsaturated in nature, apart from a benzene ring. Saturated Polyester Resins are created by concentration reaction among acids like Phthalic Anhydride, Isophthalic Acid, Neopentyl Glycol, Adipic Acid, Di-ethylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Glycerine, and others. At the time of reaction, water is created that is frequently removed from the residue. After attaining preferred considerations, the residue is cooled and moved to the blender containing Butyl Cellosolve and C-9 solvent with a stirrer on. Once all considerations of resin are gained, the resin is packed in storage tanks or in drums.

Some of the major companies that are popular for producing the saturated polyester resins are Royal DSM N.V., Nuplex Industries Ltd., Allnex Belgium SA/NV, Nippon Gohsei, Arkema S.A., Evonik Industries, Stepan Company, Covestro AG, Hangzhou Sino French, Megara Resins, Hitachi Chemicals, and Bayer Coatings among others. Among this, Nuplex Industries Ltd. is well known for its good quality products.

By adjusting the formulations, such as an extreme polyol, the residue can be polyester which is hydroxyl terminated. If there is of excess acid, then the residue is carboxyl terminated polyester. The most usually employed saturated polyester resin is having terminal groups of hydroxyl.

The saturated polyester resin having terminal groups of hydroxyl is most usually employed in coatings sectors. It can be mixed with amino cross-linking resin to produce a paint system. It can be also used to form a two-component polyurethane system by mixing with the polyisocyanate, which is normal at room temperature. This property of the saturated polyester resin is also one of the reasons that are boosting the global saturated polyester resins market.
