Alkyd Resin Market Segmentation 

Alkyd Resin Market - By Resin Type

  • Non-Drying Alkyd Resins
  • Drying Alkyd Resins 
  • Semi-Drying Alkyd Resins

Non-drying alkyd resins are widely used in the alkyd coating market. Plasticizers are additives that improve the plasticity or fluidity of a material. Good film formation is essential to meet demands for specific coating properties, such as dry film appearance, adhesion to substrate, elasticity, and toughness. 

Alkyd Resin Market - By Process Type

  • Fatty Acid Process 
  • Glyceride Process

They are used to control the film-forming process of coatings based on the physical drying of films that form a higher quality; High-performance alkyds are developed in the fatty acid process, where the resulting resin composition can be controlled more precisely. In this process, an acid anhydride, a polyol, and an unsaturated fatty acid are mixed and cooked together until the product reaches a predetermined viscosity level.
