Product Description Application Methods Ulterion 531 OPV is a low viscosity coating developed for oil resistance & water repellency. It has applications in moisture barrier coatings, cold release coatings, food packaging coatings, and others where water & oil holdout is a requirement and process-curing conditions are minimal. Ulterion 531 OPV provides the ultimate in water holdout. It’s high surface tension allows it to be used as a base coat as well as a top coat and to be double bumped for optimizing water holdout and OGR properties.

The information contained herein is thought to be accurate in all aspects; however, the applications for these products mentioned are presented without guarantee or responsibility as to the suitability of our products whether used singly or in combination with other products. Nothing herein is to be taken as a license to operate under or as a recommendation to infringe any patents. The products are sold without warranty, expressed or implied, and are purchased at buyer’s risk.
If a desired viscosity is required that is higher than the base polymer, we recommend Ulterion 200 LT, 205 LT, or 237 LT as the thickener of choice. It gives optimal thickening at a neutral pH that enhances runabilty of our coatings at the desired higher viscosities. The low viscosity of Ulterion 531 OPV makes it particularly suitable for air knife and on-machine applications such as size press or spray systems where adequate heat and drying follows.
Handling / Storage Stability The Ulterion 531 OPV is a made to order product, which should be kept in Cool dry conditions. Storage temperatures above 90°F will decrease the shelf life considerably. Optimal storage conditions will yield a shelf life of 60 days from the date of manufacture.
