The isophthalic backbone gives added water and saponification resistance.SYNOLAC® 6883 can be used in combination with high solid long oil alkyds in matt and satin- finish paints in order to improve the open time, build and in particular to enhance the flexibility of the film, thus avoiding the problems of cracking and peeling upon ageing.
