Press Release Summary:
MegatranÂ® 233 features high gloss characteristics with scuff and scratch resistance. Due to high solids content, formulations based on Megatran 233 polymer require fewer coats than are needed with conventional lower-solids formulations. Use of sulfate and sulfonate groups attached to polymer backbone stabilize polymer emulsion particles during drying process. Finishes respond well to low-speed spray buffing and occasional ultra-high-speed maintenance.
Original Press Release:
New High-Solids Durable Floor Finish Polymer
CANTON, MA - Interpolymer Corp. introduces its new polymer for high-solids durable floor finishes with superior scuff and scratch resistance. When properly formulated, Megatran® 233 produces very durable floor finish formulations that feature excellent gloss characteristics and require very little maintenance.
Due to high solids content, formulations based on the patented Megatran 233 polymer require fewer coats than are needed with conventional lower-solids formulations. This translates into reduced labor costs while achieving the same glossy, tough finishes typically obtained with several extra coats of lower-solids formulations.
Megatran 233 formulations perform well over a wide range of temperatures and humidities, even if the application instructions are not followed strictly. Finishes respond well to low-speed spray buffing and occasional ultra-high-speed maintenance. This expanded "window of success" is due in part to the use of sulfate and sulfonate groups attached to the polymer backbone (instead of the weaker carboxylic acid groups used in conventional polymers) to stabilize polymer emulsion particles during the drying process.
Interpolymer's patented line of Megatran polymers represents the first major innovation in floor-care polymer technology in the last 10 years. Megatrans offer measurable advantages for a wide variety of floor finish formulations, from dry-bright to high-speed burnishable formulations, while providing the low viscosity and ease of use typical of lower-solids formulations. For a unique end use or special performance advantage, Interpolymer engineers are willing to custom design a polymer based on Megatran technology.
Interpolymer Corp., headquartered in Canton, Massachusetts, is a leading producer of specialty polymers and wax emulsions with regional headquarters and production facilities in the United States and Europe and sales offices in Germany, France, and China. Interpolymer's Syntran and Megatran brand polymers are used in many personal care products, household products, and specialty products as well as in compounds to clean or protect floors, stone and marble, fabric, and wood.
