Vinyl Resins

Vinyl Resin Technology

Shin-Etsu MicroSi supports two Shin-Etsu group companies servicing the coating, ink, adhesive and film industries in the Americas.


Nissin Chemical Industry Co., Ltd
.

Manufactures functional vinyl resins consisting of various base chemicals, including vinyl chloride copolymer, vinyl acetate, and acrylic acid ester. A functional vinyl resin is a material that improves the intrinsic performance of general-purpose resins to a maximum level upon introduction. Functional vinyl resins such as water based resin and solvent based resin can also provide characteristic functionalities to the texture and other properties of a product, creating added value and resulting in increased customer satisfaction. Nissin’s vinyl resins are marketed under three names:

Solbin

Solvent Based Applications

Solbin is a modified vinyl resin that combines the toughness and chemical resistance of vinyl chloride copolymer with the strong adhesiveness and plasticity of vinyl acetate.

Vinyblan

Water Based Applications

Vinyblan is a copolymerized water based resin consisting of vinyl chloride copolymer mixed with acrylic acid ester and vinyl acetate.

Chaline

Chaline is a hybrid emulsion which offers the surface activity of silicone resin and the film-forming ability of acrylic resin as well as excellent compatibility with other vinyl resins. It has a unique silicone-rich silicone/acrylic composition. Chaline can be added to aqueous resin coating materials as an additive to impart surface activity to resin-molded products, resin films, resin sheets, artificial leather, and metallic materials.
