Solid Acrylic Resins

While Sun Polymers manufactures a wide range of polyester resins, we also manufacture solid acrylic resins for coatings, adhesives, and inks.

Thermoplastic acrylics

This class of solid acrylic resins is the solution to challenges that are common to paint and ink manufacturers. Benefits include:

  • Promotes adhesion to difficult substrates like plastics and certain metals
  • Provides a good vehicle for dispersing pigments
  • Weatherable
  • Compatible with various systems

The Sun Polymers difference

We use a manufacturing process that results in free flowing beads of acrylics instead of the typical flakes or shards. This not only improves ease of handling, but provides several additional advantages, including:

  • Improved consistency
  • Reduced residual solvent and contaminants
  • Low odor
  • Less dust

You will benefit from the cost savings and quality outcomes of Sun Polymer Solid Acrylics.
