Uses
Alkyd resins are used as vehicles in exterior house paints, marine paints, and baking enamels. Molded alkyd resins are used for electrical components, distributor caps, encapsulation, and a variety of similar applications.
Definition
A thermosetting coating polymer, chemically similar to polyester resins, conventionally made by condensation and polymerization of a dihydric or polyhydric alcohol (ethylene glycol or glycerol) and a polybasic acid (phthalic anhydride), usually with a drying oil modifier. The process requires heating at 230–250C for up to 12 hours. A new and quite different method utilizes epoxy addition polymerization, in which a mixture of glycidyl esters and organic acid anhydrides is heated with a metallic catalyst at 100C or less for only 2–4 hours. Cost and energy savings and improved application performance are realized by this process.
