Innovative Polymer Manufacturing for the Coatings Industry
OPC POLYMERS is in its sixth decade of manufacturing a complete spectrum of quality resins for the coatings industry.
A family-owned business since its founding, OPC Polymers offers deep product knowledge based on generations of experience, comprehensive understanding of customer challenges and solutions, and operational flexibility.
Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio with a Canadian Sales Division in Toronto, Ontario OPC Polymers has moved into top ranks of resin manufactures through a combination of acquisitions and organic growth. Today, OPC Polymers is the leading manufacturer of monomer-modified alkyds for the paint and coatings markets and one of the top North American suppliers of resins for the coatings industry.
Since 2001 OPC Polymers has more than doubled its production and storage capabilities, and in 2009 it made another significant commitment to the industry with the acquisition of the SI Group’s Canadian Coatings Resins Business.
OPC Polymers is particularly proud of its polymer research and development. It has earned an industry reputation for quality control, product information, application support, and innovative new polymers. OPC Polymers is certified to the ISO 9001:2008 standard for its quality management system.
Meeting the demands of ever-changing environmental regulations is important, and we work closely with our customers to develop solutions that meet or exceed their expectations:
“One of the keys to our success and growth is the development of cost effective products that our customers can use to meet the performance and environmental requirements of the marketplace.”
As a result, we boast one of the most complete lines of high-solids, HAPs-free (Hazardous Air Pollutants), and exempt-solvent product lines in the industry.
Unlike latex or acrylic resins, which are derived from non-renewable hydrocarbons, today’s alkyds are based on domestically-grown vegetable oils and typically contain 30%-50% renewable resources. OPC Polymers has developed new products that are completely solvent-free, use high-content bio-based chemistry, or are based on entirely renewable resources.
OPC Polymers takes pride in its history of service to the industry, its steady growth over many years, and the relationships it has developed with its customers. “We have achieved industry leadership by listening carefully to our customers, anticipating their needs, and ensuring they receive the right products at the right time. When we look ahead, we see a future of continued growth built on focusing on the fundamentals of our business and meeting the evolving needs of our customers.”
