- Soluble in ketones, esters and chlorinated hydrocar-bons. Use aromatic hydrocarbons as diluent solvents. Insoluble in alcohol, oil and aliphatic hydrocarbons.
- Chemically stable and is unaffected by acids and alkalis at normal temperature.
- It combines high water resistance with low moisture permeability and low water absorption.
- Tough, resilient and non-flammable.
- Solbin C is colorless and transparent with a high refraction index, it can be changed into any bright color and produces a highly glossy film.
- It possesses an excellent ability to resist the effects of weather and aging.
- As a thermoplastic, films made with Solbin C can be easily heat sealed.

How to Use
- To ensure Solbin C quickly goes into solution it is recommended to disperse it into a weaker solvent such as toluene and xylene then blend with the stronger solvent.
- Solbin C is usually dissolved in a combination of both ketone (e.g. MEK and MIBK) and aromatic hydrocarbon (e.g. toluene and xylene) solvents in equal proportions, to produce a solution of 15%-20% concentration by weight. For coatings on a porous substance, (paper or cloth), faster drying solvents such as MEK and acetone are recommended.
- For Spray coating, MIBK is used. For baking on metals, ketone with a high boiling point such cyclohexanone is used. For roll coatings, cyclohexanone or isophorone are
- sometimes used. Heating to around 50°C and sufficient agitation are required to speed up dissolving.
- In order to provide proper flexibility, resilience and adhesiveness to film, 5-20 PHR of plasticizer are added. The kind and amount of plasticizer to be added can be determined in the same manner as in the method of blending polyvinyl chloride resins.
- Most common pigments can be employed.
- Stabilizers against heat and light are used, as with conventional polyvinyl chloride resins. The addition of about 0.2% propylene oxide, in this case, can prevent the corrosion of containers and change in paints in storage.
- Any method of coating, including spraying, roll coating and others, may be used. For roll coating, a solution of 200-400 seconds in Ford Cup No.4 viscosity should be used. For Spray applications a solution of 60-80 seconds Ford Cup No.4 viscosity should be used at an air pressure of 98-100psi and a liquid pressure of 20-30psi.
- Solbin C does not usually provide satisfactory adhesion through air drying alone. The following chart provides the degree of adhesion to various surfaces by air drying:
- Short-time baking at 170-190°C will significantly improve ad- hesion and surface gloss. When primers are used, sufficient adhesion may be obtained without baking.
