Uni-Rez Polyamides

Non-Reactive Polyamide Resins

UNI-REZ™ non-reactive polyamide resins are designed for specific product performance needs and suitable for use in a wide variety of adhesive, flexible packaging ink, traffic marking, and coatings applications. These products offer 75-95% bio-renewable content, providing a renewable substitute to petroleum based alternatives.

Key Features

UNI-REZ® 138 is an alcohol soluble polyamide resin of comparatively low viscosity. It has excellent pigment wetting, good color and odor levels, good grease and chemical resistance, and very high gel and water resistance along with excellent solvent release and blocking resistance. Its high ester tolerance permits addition of small proportions of nitrocellulose without loss of any of these properties.

UNI-REZ® 2209 is an alcohol soluble polyamide resin with relatively high molecular weight which affords good abrasion and chemical resistance, alcohol solubility, fast solvent release, compatibility with nitrocellulose, and good heat resistance.

UNI-REZ® 2215 is a midrange molecular weight alcohol soluble polyamide resin which affords a good balance of viscosity and film properties, excellent gel resistance and fast recovery times, compatibility with nitrocellulose, and good heat resistance.

UNI-REZ® 2221 is a low molecular weight alcohol soluble polyamide resin which affords excellent gel resistance and fast recovery times, compatibility with nitrocellulose, and good heat resistance. Its low viscosity makes formulating at higher solids possible.

UNI-REZ® 2224 is a low molecular weight, low viscosity alcohol soluble polyamide resin which affords excellent gel resistance and fast recovery times, compatibility with nitrocellulose, and good heat resistance. Its low viscosity makes formulating at higher solids possible.

UNI-REZ® 2228 is a relatively high molecular weight alcohol soluble polyamide resin with excellent crinkle, abrasion, and chemical resistance, excellent gel resistance and fast recovery times, compatibility with nitrocellulose, and good heat resistance.

UNI-REZ® 2229 is amid range molecular weight alcohol soluble polyamide resin with a good balance of viscosity and film properties, very good gel resistance and fast recovery times, compatibility with nitrocellulose, and good heat resistance.

UNI-REZ® 2291 is a high molecular weight polyamide designed to provide laminating inks with a combination of excellent adhesion and good viscosity stability. It has good alcohol solubility, low odor and the fast solvent release needed to obtain a low retain level in laminates.

UNI-REZ® 2930 is a co-solvent type polyamide resin which is soluble in mixtures of aliphatic hydrocarbons and alcohols. It provides fast solvent release and good grease resistance in flexographic inks for plastic substrates.

UNI-REZ® 2940 is a co-solvent type polyamide resin which is soluble in mixtures of aliphatic hydrocarbons and alcohols. It provides fast solvent release and good grease resistance in flexographic inks for plastic substrates.
