Powder Coating Resins
resins are designed with either hydroxyl or carboxyl functionality and
combine with various curatives to form durable, attractive,
environmentally friendly powder coatings. With Stepan's RUCOTE
resins, formulators can enhance the quality, performance, and esthetic of
finishes on a wide variety of substrates. Stepan manufactures RUCOTE resins in
its ISO 9001:2008 certified production facility in Columbus, GA.
Phthalic anhydride (P.A.) is an
important part of Stepan’s Polymers division. In addition to being used in many
of our polyester polyol chemistry, phthalic anhydride is a key raw material
for plasticizers and unsaturated polyester resins. Stepan manufactures P.A.
in its ISO 9001:2008 certified production site in Millsdale,
Stepan’s polyester polyols, used
in rigid foam insulation, offer impressive sustainability advantage,
contributing to significant energy savings and reduced greenhouse gas
emissions. Sales of Stepan’s polyester polyol in 2016 contributed to saving 97
million barrels of oil. Over a twenty-year period, covering the life-span of
polyiso insulating boards, Stepan’s polyester polyols have contributed to 1
billion barrels of oil saved.
