VERSALOID Flexible Acrylic Resins (FARs) from Dow offer an optimized combination of performance properties in finished goods produced via extrusion, calendaring or injection molding. The inherently flexible nature of these polymers eliminates the need for plasticizers such as migration to the surrounding environment. As 100 percent acrylic polymers, parts produced from higher surface energy relative to polyolefin and PVC matrices offer outstanding print adhesion to a variety of plastic substrates. Chemistry represents a versatile free radical emulsion polymerization process differing end product requirements. FAR demonstrates surface hardness, high flexibility and competitive cost performance versus commerce alternatives in the acrylic resins market today. The inherently flexible nature of these polymers eliminates the need for plasticizers which pose ding environment.
