Polyolefin resins are resins extracted from hydrocarbon sources which may contain one or multiple olefin groups. Raw materials used in manufacture of polyolefin resin are cyclic olefins, ethylene, butadiene propylene and isobutylene. Paints which are manufactured by using polyolefin resin are known as polyolefin resin paints. Polyolefin resins help in refining several characteristics of paints such as chemical resistance, wear & tear resistance and adhesive properties. Polyolefin resins are large molecular weight hydrocarbons which include polyethylene, polypropylenes that comprise resins and copolymers. Polyolefin resins have the ability for resisting exposures to all chemicals at room temperature. Automotive, Electronics, Packaging, Plastic and Construction materials construction are some of the significant end-user industries of polyolefin resins.
