DIACRON™ FC-1588 is a polyester resin with excellent solvent solubility. It is a low molecular weight (Mw)-grade of ER-535 and is optimal as a binder for paints and inks. Especially, the use of organic solvents can be reduced because low viscosity high-solid solutions are possible. It improves hardness, heat resistance, toughness, and solvent resistance by using curing agents such as isocyanates and epoxy resins.   Features: Low temperature fusion Excellent metal adhesion Excellent pigment dispersion. Can be used with cross-linking agents   Benefits: Solvent solubility High solid differentiation Use of biomass raw materials   Applications: Solventborne Coating For various types of inks Solventless & High Solids Coating   *DIACRON™ is provided by Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, a member of the Mitsubishi Chemical Group.
