Interpolymer Corp., Canton, MA, launch-ed Megatran 233, a polymer that enhances durable floor finish formulations with excellent gloss characteristics, in a wide range of temperatures and humidities. Megatran 223’s sulfate and sulfonate groups attach to the polymer backbone to stabilize polymer emulsion particles during the drying process, resulting in a good response to low-speed spray buffing and occasional ultra high-speed maintenance.
Also new are Syntran Personal Care opacifiers, a line of opacifiers for floor finish formulations in the household and I&I markets. They also offer broad formulation compatibility, excellent consistency and significantly brighter and whiter products due to their unique acrylic copolymer emulsions.
