The article focuses on the alternatives being considered by coatings suppliers to displace the acrylic resins in their process due to demand for low volatile organic compounds (VOC) and expected rise of demand and price for the said resins. It states that Arkema Emulsion Systems uses binder technologies such as Neocar® to lessen costs from acrylics. Meanwhile, Omonova Solutions Inc. uses NM®-128 non-zinc polymer to achieve high performing polishes.
