An alkyd is a polyester resin modified by the addition of fatty acids and other components. Alkyds are derived from polyols and organic acids including dicarboxylic acids or carboxylic acid anhydride and triglyceride oils. The term alkyd is a modification of the original name "alcid", reflecting the fact that they are derived from alcohol and organic acids. The inclusion of a fatty acid confers a tendency to form flexible coatings. Alkyds are used in paints, varnishes and in moulds for casting.
Our Alkyd resins are widely used in the manufacture of paints and coatings. Applications include interior and exterior decorative coatings, as well as low bake and general purpose industrial coatings. Their high gloss and adhesion to various substrates from metal to wood make them top quality products in the sector. Some grades also comply with marine and artist paints needs.
