Resisting Wear with Protective Films

Momentive’s portfolio of resins can offer long-lasting protection and enhanced product durability unique to multiple and varied applications. Formulators of personal care products may employ our resins’ unusual combination of comfort and long-lasting wearability, while the coatings and paint industries may use our resins as additives for coatings and paints to impart heat, chemical and weather resistance.

In personal care products, we typically offer a variety of resin-based formulations that may extend potential benefits such as natural coverage, excellent shine or soft focus effects.  In a variety of products, our resins typically offer excellent film-forming properties that may mimic the movement of skin and provide a comfortable, non-tightening feel.  

For heat resistant paints and primers, our coating and binder resins may provide excellent thermal resistance along with potential benefits such as good gloss and color retention, improved flexibility, low viscosity and water or corrosion resistance. This line of thermally resistant resins includes phenyl/methyl and methyl resins which are excellent candidates to consider for highly thermal and UV resistant paints.  

Other considerations for our resins include: 

  • Primerless adhesion to a multitude of construction substrates, including concrete.
  • Antiblocking agents for plastic films.
  • Good gloss and color retention in paints.
  • Additives that can help control fluidity and to prevent static electricity in toner inks.  

For lasting protection, consider Momentive's superior silicone resins.
