Is a UV Curable Adhesive or Coating the Right Choice for Me?

The past few decades have seen the emergence and use of ultraviolet (UV) light cured polymers across a range of industries and applications. UV cured polymers have proven their value in applications such as printing inks, adhesives, and protective coatings among others. Read more.

Electric Vehicles: Polymers for Performance, Reliability, & Protection

Adoption of plug in -electric vehicles (EVs) has been slower than many expected, but there is little question the next few years will see adoption accelerate. Your hypersensitive dog will have to find new visitors to harass when your delivery drivers arrive without notice, driving to your door silently in all-electric commercial vans. Read more.

How to Verify the Quality of Water-Borne Industrial Soft Feel Coatings

The development and improvement of soft feel plastics such as PVCs and thermoplastic polyolefins (TPOs) continues unabated. Consumers in industries including furniture and automotive interiors require rich appearance and tactile superiority as compared to previous plastic materials.   Read more.

Liquid Waste Solidification Using Superabsorbent Polymers – Video

When a Southeastern US-based fiber optic and telecom contractor was faced with a persistent liquid waste management challenge, the contractor contacted Zappa-Stewart to conduct an on-site demonstration of solidification with ZapZorb superabsorbent polymers (SAPs). Read more.

Durable and Safe: The Next Generation of Water-Borne Urethanes

Coatings formulators and manufacturers of protective and decorative coatings are often forced to make compromises. Ideally any protective coating will be a balance of a number of critical properties including: Read more.

With SAPs: “S” stands for SAFE

Safety is of the highest importance with most companies in any industry. And while sodium polyacrylate superabsorbent polymers (SAP) are extremely safe products, misconceptions or uncertainties about the safety of SAPs are often encountered in various SAP end-use markets. Read more

Is Water-based Polyurethane Eco-friendly?

Environmental regulations and standards have continued to evolve both in the United States and elsewhere around the globe. With very few exceptions, there has been a steady erosion of the acceptability and popularity of polymers and solvents considered to be damaging to either the ecosystem, the workforce, or the neighboring population.
