1 xiameter RSN-6018 Resin Silicone intermediate for colored and high-temperature finishes FEATURES APPLICATIONS. Contributes to good thermal xiameter RSN-6018 Resin is primarily used in maintenance and and weathering resistance of architectural finishes, appliance finishes, coil coatings and high- formulated paints temperature finishes. Resistance to chalking and Maintenance, coil coating and architectural finishes based on checking organic copolymers modified with xiameter RSN-6018 Resin Gloss and color retention exhibit good chalk resistance and retain their color and gloss after Aluminum-pigmented coatings years of outdoor exposure. based on 30% xiameter .. High-temperature finishes prepared with silicone-organic copolymers RSN-6018 Resin are and cold blends have excellent gloss and color retention and can be serviceable up to 425 C used on space heaters, ovens, incinerators and similar high- (797 F) temperature appliances. Silicone organic blends containing xiameter RSN-6018 Resin may COMPOSITION also be used in powder coating applications where improved weatherability and heat resistance are required.

4 DESCRIPTION This reaction can be selection of organic resins and xiameter RSN-6018 Resin is a accomplished by employing either formulations because of improved hydroxy-functional, low-molecular- solvent or fusion methods with compatibility with the formation of weight silicone intermediate that conventional techniques and the silicone-organic (=Si O C=). reacts with a wide variety of equipment. A titanate catalyst bonds. Sufficient excess carbinol organic resins and monomers. such as tetrabutyl titanate will functionality must be provided for Resins modified with xiameter accelerate the copolymerization optimum compatibility and Resin RSN-6018 Resin show improved reaction. xiameter RSN-6018 stability. heat stability and weatherability Resin can also be cold blended over unmodified resins. This with a variety of organic resins to Cold blending with xiameter . versatile intermediate reacts with improve weatherability and heat RSN-6018 Resin limits the organic alkyds, phenolics, epoxies, resistance.
5 Compatibility should Resin selection because of polyesters and other organic be tested before use. compatibility but offers lower resinous materials containing processing costs as compared hydroxyl groups. Such reaction HOW TO USE with copolymerization. Solvent takes place as follows: xiameter RSN-6018 Resin can selection is important with cold be copolymerized or cold blended blending the silicone with organic =SiOH + HOC= =Si O C= + with a variety of organic resins. resins in regards to Resin solution H2O Copolymerization with carbinols stability, viscosity and paint on organic resins offers a wider properties. xiameter RSN-6018 . xiameter RSN-6018 Resin 2012, September 28 xiameter is a registered trademark of Dow Corning Corporation.
