Solvent Aromatic Semi Film Formers
Resins in this category have a high isocyanate content which imparts increased resistance properties similar to Reze-Lastic 2146 thru 2166 with the addition of chemical resistance. All of these resins can be used to plasticize and modify nitrocellulose. These resins all show evidence of exceptional bond strengths and adhesion in laminating systems. A titanate cross-linker should be incorporated at the appropriate level.
