Ascend Performance Materials to exhibit unique, sustainable solutions at ACS

Sustainability and performance will be the focus of Ascend Performance Materials’ booth at American Coatings Show. The company will be showcasing a number of unique and sustainable products for paints and coatings, including:
  • Hextranol E, an ultralow-VOC, low-odor and biodegradable coalescing aid that produces superior film integrity at low loading levels, saving money without sacrificing performance. Hextranol E works with a variety of workhorse resins and on substrates with varying levels of porosity.
  • Hexatran, a trifunctional amine that works well as a crosslinker and improves cure time and chemical resistance in epoxies and can produce a non-yellowing isocyanate with superior chemical and weather resistance.
  • FlexaTrac-DME Specialties, a range of high-purity, low-VOC and biodegradable dibasic ester solvents and carriers available in custom blends for specific functionality.
  • FlexaTram-DAM-950, a high-purity 1,2-diaminocyclohexane used as a crosslinker. Ascend is one of only two producers of high-purity DACH.
Ascend Performance Materials (booth 844) will be exhibiting these unique and sustainable solutions at the American Coatings Show, April 10-12, Indianapolis, Indiana. Representatives will be on hand to speak on the company’s product offerings for paints, coatings, epoxies and adhesives.
