4-Vinylpyridine in Coatings
4-Vinylpyridine (4VP) is used in multiple end applications within the coatings space. It can be found in paints and inks, automotive paint, and specialty plastics.
Vinylpyridines provide a unique set of properties to wide range of applications due to good thermal stability, chemical stability, mild basicity, mild pH trigger, and compatibility with most polymerization techniques.
Coatings and Inks
4-Vinylpyridine is a high performing component of polymeric dispersants, that promotes stable dye dispersion. The unique properties of flexibility and hydrophobic/hydrophilic balance of the 4-vinylpyridine polymer chain raise the performance bar for inks and coatings.
4-Vinylpyridine in premium automotive finishes.
Because of their high temperature stability, good porosity, and excellent chelation by the pyridine ring, 4-vinylpyridine based polymers find use as carriers for metal catalysts for many industrial reactions and in specialty plastic manufacturing.
