Versatic™ Monomers for Wood Coatings



Protective surface coatings for wood require properties such as resistance to water, weathering and UV, excellent adhesion and a good balance between hardness and flexibility. Hexion’s VeoVa™ vinyl ester can be used in the production of a wide variety of emulsion polymers for high performance exterior wood coatings.

Acrylic polymers modified with VeoVa monomers (VeoCryls), are particularly suitable for high-performance exterior wood coatings. The core / shell technology can be used to obtain polymers with a very good balance between hardness and flexibility.

VeoCryl-based coatings provide:

  • Longer lasting wood protection through increased water repellence
  • UV resistance
  • Increased adhesion to wood
  • Improved weatherability
  • Longer exterior durability


VeoVa Silane Technology: High-performance isocyanate-free coatings made affordably

The unique combination of VeoVa vinyl ester monomers and vinyl silanes allows you to perfectly balance the performance of your coatings.

Coating systems can be formulated with extremely long pot lives, yet with very fast property development, immediately after application. The moisture cure mechanism ensures a quick and efficient crosslinking, and fast development of the final properties. The very short dust-free time and early hardness development allow for a high productivity with either 1K or 2K systems.

Coatings developed as 1K systems simplify handling, storage and transportation and reduce waste and overall cost. The completely isocyanate-free curing processes further reduce environmental impact and provide healthier work environments.
