Hexion Inc. and ADDAPT Chemicals BV Announce New Hybrid Polymer System

PERNIS, Netherlands–(BUSINESS WIRE)–VeoVa™ vinyl ester monomer, a Versatic™ Acids & Derivatives product from
Hexion Inc. (“Hexion” or the “Company”), is one of the key components in
a new specialized hybrid polymer technology developed by ADDAPT
Chemicals BV for the paint and coatings industry. The Addapt VeoPoxTM
products are novel adhesion promotors for use in various technologies
and substrates, offering improved adhesion and corrosion protection.

ADDAPT Chemicals BV, an independent chemical company located in the
Netherlands, leveraged Hexion’s VeoVa™ vinyl ester monomer as a reactive
diluent, to develop a novel adhesion promotor for, among others, DTM
(direct to metal) systems. VeoPoxTM significantly increases
adhesion and anti-corrosion properties.

The synergistic effects of the VeoPoxTM hybrid polymer
systems enable formulators to develop new higher performance systems,
overcoming limitations and shortcomings of existing polymer systems. The
VeoPoxTM range is applicable for epoxy, alkyd and acrylic
binder systems, both solvent and waterborne.

“Hexion was pleased to cooperate with ADDAPT Chemicals BV to facilitate
developing the novel VeoPoxTM range, to create an excellent
adhesion promotor and corrosion protector for the protective coatings
and industrial paints industry,” said Harold Schweitzer, Vice President
and General Manager, Versatic™ Acids & Derivatives. “Importantly, the
VeoPoxTM range enables customers to develop state of the art
technologies that meet the growing need for more sustainable solutions
in response to recent stringent legislation in Europe, combined with
excellent physical properties of the coating.”
