OSC seeks organizations interested in using soy-PK, a soy-based resin, in commercial applications such as adhesives, coatings, plastics, and elastomers.
Soy-PK (CAS# 1973457-12-3) is a proprietary soy-based resin developed to replace Bisphenol-A (BPA) based resins. Soy-PK is reactive with many cross linkers (amino resin, polymeric isocyanates and acrylates) and capable of forming coatings that match the performance of BPA based coatings.
Foam obtained using Soy-PK resin
Features and Benefits
Bio based resin derived from soybean oil with significantly improved properties compared to alkyds and conventional oleoresins
Enhanced chemical and corrosion resistance compared to traditional bio-based resins
Forms more stable bonds during crosslinking as opposed to less stable esters or urethane linkages
Excellent pot life
Easy to formulate with traditional coating solvents
Enhanced cure kinetics over traditional bio-based resins
Drop in replacement for BPA and phenolics in many coating applications
No detectable level of estrogenic activity and anti-estrogenic activity in BG1Luc assay
Versatile resin for making coatings, adhesives, sealants, elastomers, and foams
For more information about the resin, see data package at:
Acceptable prospect for market demand (or at least growth potential)
