CREATING PERFORMANCE THROUGH CHEMISTRY
Building upon decades spent advancing materials chemistry innovation, NatureWorks offers solutions based on lactides and lactide intermediates that help innovators within the coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers (C.A.S.E.), toner and surfactant industries realize:
Significant, measurable product performance benefits.
Move through the R&D process more efficiently and with minimal risk
Decrease systems costs via an optimized supply chain
We achieve this by coupling tunable Vercet™ lactide-based chemistries with the knowledge of scientists and engineers who understand how to dial in the full capabilities of this versatile product line.
Lactides for Alkyd Polyesters in Coatings
Using Vercet lactides as a component in your resins enables unique properties including a new way of creating low VOC solvent-borne coatings for substrates such as wood and metal.
Polyols for Polyurethanes
Using Vercet polyols for polyurethanes allows customization for properties including excellent grease and oil resistance for both adhesives and coatings.
Resins for Coatings & Adhesives
Vercet resins for coatings & adhesives enable unique properties including a tunable work-life, more end-of-life options, excellent adhesion, and low dispensing temperatures for substrates such as fiber board, paper food packaging, and woods.
