4-Vinylpyridine in Electronics

4-Vinylpyridine (4VP) finds use in electronics. 

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.


Resin Systems

4-Vinylpyridine (4VP) is a key intermediate in resin systems. Resin systems are widely used for potting and encapsulation in the electronics and electrical industries. They help bind the composite structure together, while protecting it from impact, corrosion, and other environmental factors.

Ion Exchange Resins

4-Vinylpyridine based resins have unique properties due to the pyridine ring and resin’s strong interactions with polar and aromatic materials that enable their removal from liquid and gaseous process streams. The chemical and thermal stability of the resin gives utility in a wide range of ion exchange applications.
