Vinyl Resins

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:


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.


Water Based Applications

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


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.
