Jul 2020. Alkyd surface coatings continue to be one of the most highly consumed types of coatings used in the world, despite the increasing use of other film formers. The success of alkyd resin systems is a result of their relatively low cost, versatility, and long familiarity with users. They can be tailored to meet a variety of end-use requirements through the choice and ratio of reactants and/or modifiers. Alkyds are used extensively in architectural coatings, product finishes, and special-purpose coatings. Promoters of alkyd resins note that they are partly made from fatty acids or oils derived from renewable sources, making them greener than most competitive coating resins. Alkyds were the first synthetic coatings binder used in commercial practice, first used in large quantities in the 1930s. Polyesters, also referred to as oil-free alkyds, are made in the same equipment as alkyds and use many of the same raw materials. Polyesters are used almost exclusively in industrial baking finishes.
