Huntsman's functional amines, carbonates and polymer derivatives offer infinite possibilities for the creation of domestic, decorative and industrial paints and coatings. Bringing balance and stability to complex epoxy, polyurethane and acrylic resin-based formulations, they make it easier to modify reactivity, improve dispersion, reduce viscosity and influence production, functionality and physical features such as gloss, tint acceptance, opacity, rheology and durability. Our polyetheramines offer tremendous opportunities to derivatize new molecules, for example: by reacting with epoxides to form amino-alcohols; isocyanates to form ureas; carboxylic acids to form amides; and aldehydes to form amines. Products for waterborne coatings include surfactants, emulsifiers, wetting agents, stabilizers, humectants, dispersant intermediates and dispersants. And our extensive range of polyurethane additives can act as catalysts to give polyether and polyester coatings greater strength, durability and functionality.
