Nychem® 1800X73

Nychem® 1800X73 Styrene-Butadiene Latex

Nychem 1800X73 is one of our Styrene Butadiene Emulsion offerings. This line features a combination of good polar solvent resistance, toughness and elasticity. Toughness, abrasion resistance and chemical resistance can be further enhanced though either vulcanization or by adding external crosslinking agents such as melamines, epoxies, phenolics or metal complexes. Nychem 1800X73 is a noncarboxylated styrene butadiene polymer latex that is stabilized with low/no surfactant so it has high surface tension which gives good resistance to rewetting, good water resistance and low foaming. It is a very firm and durable polymer with excellent film clarity and gloss. Common application is metal coatings.
