Press Release Summary:
Dow CorningÂ® 2405 Resin helps formulators overcome such limitations as brittleness, poor impact resistance, and film-building constraintsÂ associated with resins used to formulate high-temperature-resistant, room-temperature-curing coatings. When catalyzed by titanium compounds, product cures within 60 min at ambient temperature to form medium-hard coating. This methyl methoxy resin, with solventless delivery and tin-free cure, is optimized for flexibility, impact resistance, and film build.

Dow Corning Introduces New Resin for High-Temperature-Resistant, Room-Temperature-Curing Coatings
Dow Corning® 2405 Resin offers improved coating flexibility and impact resistance plus better film build
MIDLAND, MICHIGAN, USA – Dow Corning Corporation has introduced a new silicone resin to meet the need for high-temperature-resistant, room-temperature-curing coatings with improved flexibility, impact resistance and film build.
Dow Corning® 2405 Resin is a solventless methyl methoxy resin. When catalyzed by titanium compounds, such as TnBT, the product cures within 60 minutes at ambient temperature to form a medium-hard coating with good solvent resistance and high heat resistance.
This new resin is designed to help formulators overcome limitations – including brittleness, poor impact resistance and film-building constraints – associated with resins traditionally used to formulate high-temperature-resistant, room-temperature-curing coatings.
“Paint formulators are under pressure to deliver more-sustainable products. This is reflected in the demand for less energy-intensive curing systems for heat-resistant coatings,” said Dow Corning Coatings Global Segment Leader Chris Wall. “With its solventless delivery, tin-free cure and improved impact resistance, Dow Corning 2405 Resin significantly extends the formulating space for room-temperature-curing coatings for high-temperature applications.”
Dow Corning – a global leader in silicon-based solutions for paints, inks and coatings – offers a comprehensive selection of innovative silicon-based resins, binders and additives for the coatings industry. Additional information is available at dowcorning.com/coatings.
