Caulks and Mastics

MCTRON is a leading producer of emulsion polymers with a comprehensive line of acrylic, styrene-acrylic, vinyl-acrylic and vinyl-acetate products for use in caulk and mastic applications. We formulate strong, elastomeric products with superior aging characteristics. MaxxThix® rheology modifiers allow formulators to create stable viscosity products that perform consistently and reliably.

MAXXACRYL

    PermaPel® SRN020

    PermaPel SRN020 emulsion is a very soft, non-tacky binder that is a self-crosslinking. carboxylated, styrene-acrylic copolymer emulsion. Films of this emulsion are very soft and exhibit excellent resistance to discoloration.

MAXXTHIX

    MaxxThix® MT-4

    MaxxThix® MT-4 thickener is a high efficiency alkali-swellable emulsion thickener for use in emulsion polymer compounds. Applications include mastics and high viscosity compounds. The rheology of MaxxThix MT-4 thickener is short and buttery.

    MaxxThix® AT-17

    MaxxThix® AT 17 is an associative thickener, supplied as an easy-to-use alkali-swellable emulsion. It is designed for coatings with a “yield point” which flow readily under shear (such as brushing) yet which will not run (sag) when the shear is removed. Dyes thickened slightly with this product will not bleed through a paper towel. It keeps coatings on the surface of a substrate (minimal penetration).

MAXXBREAK
  • null

    MaxxBreak® SE-030

    MaxxBreak® SE-030 is an aqueous organo-silicone defoaming/antifoam emulsion formulated for a variety of industrial processing applications. It contains hydrophobic particles coupled with proprietary defoaming surfactants and spreading agents that facilitate penetration of the foam lamella, causing rapid drainage of the thin film and foam destabilization.

MAXXSPERSE

    PermaPel® WG-84

    PermaPel® WG-84 is a non-blocking MCTRON polymer designed to incorporate our wash-durable specialty monomer technology into a typical RC (rheology-controlled) polymerization system with the addition of a non-formaldehyde generating crosslinking system. The RC technology has historically been used in floor polishes, graphic arts polymers and overprint varnishes. It has superior adhesion with hard to low energy substrates such as fiberglass, plastic film, foil and galvanized aluminum. It also exhibits excellent oil and grease resistance achieving Kit values exceeding 12 when a continuous film is applied to paperboard. It also has excellent Cobb values.
