Celanese to Present Paints, Coatings & Adhesives Solutions at 2017 European Coatings Show


Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), a global technology and specialty
materials company, will present its Mowilith® brand of dispersions at
the 2017 European Coatings Show (ECS), April 4-6 in Nürnberg, Germany
(Hall A4, Booth 504).

Celanese will showcase to customers its advanced polymer dispersions
portfolio and how this year’s theme – Formulating Your Vision with
Our Expertise
– can be translated into each customer’s product

“Celanese offers a broad portfolio of emulsions products such as vinyl
acetate ethylene (VAE), pure acrylics, styrene acrylic and vinyl acetate
copolymer dispersions,” said Barry Daggs, vice president, Celanese
emulsion polymers business. “Our polymers create unique value for our
customers and are continuously optimized toward market trends and
drivers, both from performance and regulatory requirements.”

For paints and coatings customers, Celanese VAE dispersions enable
customers to achieve prime product performance in accordance with the
latest trends for environmentally friendly paints and coatings
solutions. Mowilith® VAE dispersions provide excellent application
performance in combination with regulatory properties which follow the
strictest demands of mandatory and non-mandatory regulations (e.g.,
EcoLabels) in the market. In addition to the impact on indoor air
quality, interior paints must also fulfill certain application
properties in order to meet the expectations of consumers. Celanese’s
Mowilith® products help manufacturers meet these demanding customer

The Celanese VAE inclusion technology enables the formulation of low-VOC
exterior façade paints and plasters by combining hard acrylic polymer
domains and VAE polymer into one binder system.

Versatile high-gloss paints, lacquers and varnishes, and exterior paints
that are produced with Celanese acrylic dispersions, will provide
environmentally friendly coatings with good outdoor durability on a
variety of substrates.

For adhesives customers, the Celanese technical team constantly strives
to meet technical needs by developing new, efficient adhesives that
comply with the latest regulatory requirements. Celanese dispersions for
adhesives products are constantly optimized for adhesion capabilities on
various substrates, trouble-free production and running time efficiency,
while maintaining an optimized coat weight and reduced stoppage for
cleanings. As a result, Celanese is offering high-performance
dispersions for the adhesives market with low migration potential so
they can serve as an excellent choice, even for use in food packaging.

At the European Coatings Show, Celanese will highlight the following
Mowilith® products:

Low-Emission Interior Paints

  • Mowilith®
    LDM 1828
    : a VAE vinyl ester copolymer for interior
    paints free from preservatives. The dispersion shows good wet scrub
    resistance and excellent compatibility with silicate binders so that
    the dispersion is suitable for deep matte silicate interior paints.
  • Mowilith® LDM 1852: the first heterogeneous VAE dispersion
    especially developed for low-emission satin paints. The binder offers
    optimized gloss and improved blocking for high binder containing
    paints in the medium PVC range.

Durable Exterior Coatings

  • Mowilith® LDM 1865: a VAE dispersion based on Celanese’s
    inclusion technology designed for exterior coatings. Suggested
    applications include low-emission masonry paints, weather-protection
    wood paints and exterior plasters, including External Thermal
    Insulation Composites System (ETICS).
  • Mowilith® LDM 7718: a new pure acrylic emulsion which provides
    excellent color retention in combination with organic pigments and low
    blanching under wet conditions in transparent formulations, especially
    for tinted paints and marble chip plasters.

Gloss Paints and Lacquers

  • Mowilith®
    LDM 7510
    : a pure acrylic dispersion with optimized
    balance of anti-blocking and elasticity properties for high-gloss
    paints and lacquers formulated without coalescent agents. This
    combination creates a product suitable for low-emission paints and
    coatings for decorative applications in the professional and
    do-it-yourself (DIY) segment.

Process-Efficient Adhesives

  • Mowilith® LDL 2526 W: the latest addition to Celanese’s
    ready-for-use PVAc D3 portfolio. This latest development in Mowilith®
    LDL 2526 W also joins the other products in the range in fulfilling
    current market needs for reduced formaldehyde content.
  • Mowilith® LDM 1390: this dispersion offers an outstanding
    adhesion profile enabling the formulation of adhesives for
    difficult-to-bond substrates without the need for additional
    plasticizers or tackifiers. Due to its stabilization system, Mowilith®
    LDM 1390 is fully compatible with the broader Celanese VAE portfolio.
