Royal DSM has expanded its Hybrane resins family with Hybrane CY235, a high-solid acrylic resin designed to enhance the performance of metal coatings while providing higher throughput and reduced energy consumption.

According to the company, unlike other high-solid acrylic resins, which typically require forced drying conditions at 60°C for 30 minutes, Hybrane CY235 requires a curing temperature of 40°C, delivering energy savings of as much as 48 percent compared to standard alternatives. In addition, because of the faster drying possibilities, the resin is said to shorten spray booth cycle time by 20 percent. However, these operational benefits do not compromise the performance of the resin, which delivers high hardness, a high-quality appearance with distinctiveness of image, and high reactivity without compromising on pot life, the company says.
