July, 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 787/50MP, a new, eco-friendly phenolic resin recommended for interior and exterior can coatings.

PHENODUR PR 787/50MP contains an ultralow free-formaldehyde value of < 0.01% ( < 100 ppm). In addition, it contains neither Bisphenol A nor Bisphenol F and has a very low free monomer content of < 0.1%.

PHENODUR PR 787/50MP can be used in combination with high molecular weight polyester resins in BPA-NI application or with high molecular weight epoxy resins for rigid and flexible packaging and drum lining.
