Acrylic resins are one of the most versatile resin types for coatings, adhesives and many other applications. They provide excellent resistance, durability and transparency. UI offers a broad range of high-quality initiators for solvent-based polymerization.
Water-based acrylic and styrene acrylic polymers are highly efficient binder types for many coatings and adhesive applications. They are the preferred choice when environmental aspects are central requirements. UI has the most comprehensive portfolio in the industry offering the full range of persulfates and organic peroxides.
Superabsorbers are materials able to hold more than 100 times their own weight in liquids. They are indispensable for giving diaper products the unmatched liquid storage capability. Made in a water-based process, UI has the full range of initiators to produce this high-tech material.
Main use of Styrene-Butadien Rubber (SBR) is in tires, other applications comprise shoe soles, gaskets and construction. In its latex form SBR is used as a cost-efficient binder for pigments in paper applications. United Initiators offers a complete initiator package for your SBR production.
Whenever polymers are required for high temperature stability, extreme chemical resistance, or to tailor repellent surfaces and structures, fluoropolymers are usually the first choice. We provide you with the best suited solutions for your fluoropolymer production.
PVAc is used in many coatings and adhesive applications such as paper adhesive, impregnation agent, carpet back coating and for chewing gums. It is also the precursor for PVA (Polyvinylalcohol). UI has a longstanding experience in developing and supplying optimum initiator solutions to this industry.
Polyurethanes are among the most versatile polymer-based materials used in a large variety of applications such as furniture, protective packaging or sports&leisure items. Graft copolymer polyols are an important raw material produced by radical polymerization in particular for polyurethane foam.
