AROMATIC-ALIPHATIC POLYTONE® K 88

POLYTONE® K 88 is a neutral, unsaponifiable, solvent-free, ketone-aldehyde condensation resin. This product improves gloss, hardness, and the adhesion on aluminum and steel. Use of POLYTONE® K 88 increases drying speed and builds resistance to mineral oil.

It is generally used in combination with other binders. As its widely compatible and efficient, its used to improve gloss, solid content & covering capacity of most diverse paint and coating systems.

It also has great viscosity reduction and increase of solids content for industrial coatings, wood and furniture coatings, architectural coatings, and leather coatings.

APPLICATIONS

◆ POLYTONE® K 88 is suitable for the manufacture of clear a pigmented nitrocellulose wood and metal finishes

◆ Because of its favorable price and low colour number, POLYTONE® K 88 forms a good base for the manufacture of bright clear lacquers as well as while enamels. These lacquers are generally characterized by good adhesion

◆ POLYTONE® K 88 improves the pigment loading capacity of nitrocellulose lacquers so that even at high pigmentation an excellent gloss can be still be achieved. In wood primers, POLYTONE® K 88 nitrocellulose combination lacquers containing 30%(calculated on basis of POLYTONE® K 88) of maleic resin, coconut oil or ground nut alkyd resin, or a fatty acid alkyd resin, are found to have a rapid solvent release and consequently can already be sanded after a short period of time

◆ Due to its insolubility in aliphatic hydorcarbons, POLYTONE® K 88 is suitable for the manufacture of finishes which have to be resistant to mineral oil. For the same reason, polishes containing white spirit may also be used on corresponding nitrocellulose polishing lacquers

◆ Good weathering resistance is achieved by combining POLYTONE® K 88 with nitrocellulose, plasticizers and suitable alkyd resins.

◆ POLYTONE® K 88 acts as a hard resin in combination with soft resins and polychloroprene for the manufacture of adhesive
