Solbin M5 is a copolymer of vinyl chloride (VC), vinyl acetate (VAc) and dicarbonic acid.

Product Description

Product characteristics

  • Exhibits superior adhesion to various materials, particularly metal surfaces.
  • Soluble in ketones, esters and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Use aromatic hydrocarbons as diluent solvents. Insoluble in alcohol, oil and aliphatic hydrocarbons.
  • Chemically stable and unaffected by acids and alkalis at normal temperatures.
  • Combines high water resistance with low moisture permeability and low water absorption.
  • Tough, resilient and non-flammable.
  • Solbin M5 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 is a thermoplastic, films made from it can be easily heat sealed.

  • Metal Protective Paints—Excellent non-corrosive properties.
  • Metal Container Paints –Its anti-corrosive properties makes it an excellent choice for lining food and beverage containers, including applications for medicines and cosmetics. It produces a tough film that makes it ideal for coating steel and galvanized tin plates that will be fabricated later.
  • Foil Coating –Heat-seal coatings
  • Ship Paints— Exceptionally high anticorrosive properties make it ideal for topcoat as well as wash primer and second coat applications.
  • Cellophane coating—SOLBIN M5 is damp-proof , its film is readily heat sealed, ideal for coating cellophane.
  • Concrete and Plaster Paints— Coating the walls of quays.
  • Adhesives—PVC and blister packages.
  • Plastic coatings—Adds gloss to both coating and gravure printing ink on plastic.
