allnex launches new eco-friendly phenolic resin for BPA-NI application


September 2, 2020 – allnex, the leading supplier of specialty chemicals, offering a broad range of coating resins, additives and cross-linkers for use on wood, metal, plastic and other surfaces, is excited to announce the launch of PHENODUR® PR 616/65B, a new, eco-friendly phenolic resin recommended for interior and exterior can coatings with a very low free formaldehyde value of < 0.1%.
The PHENODUR PR 616/65B contains neither Bisphenol-A nor Bisphenol-F and has very low free monomer content. PHENODUR PR 616/65B can be used in combination with high molecular weight polyester in BPA-NI application or with high molecular weight epoxy resins for rigid and flexible packaging and drum lining. These coatings show a very balanced performance in terms of flexibility and reactivity. Compared to PHENODUR PR 612/80B, our new resin PHENODUR PR 616/65B  shows improved solvent resistance without losing flexibility and has good sterilization resistance and good substrate adhesion after sterilization in traditional epoxy-phenolic coatings and in future orientated polyester-phenolic combinations (i.e. DUROFTAL® PE 6619/40SNA).

Key attributes of the PHENODUR PR 616/65B include:

  • Provides excellent balance of hardness and flexibility
  • Formulate BisA- and BisF- free coatings
  • Low level of free formaldehyde of < 0.1%
  • Delivers very smooth cured coating surface
  • Compatible with most backbone binder chemistries
