Paints, Coatings & Adhesives

If your manufacturing facility is looking for flame-retardant coating compounds, or improved adhesion capability, especially with adhesion-to-metal or other non-porous surfaces, consider Dover Chemical’s wide range of products. We also offer compounds that have improved resistance to water and chemicals, as well as antioxidants that prevent discoloration, and emulsion stability products that can aide long-term pH control, pigment dispersion and thickener additives. Check out these products in the table below.

Used In
Flame Retardancy
  • Chlorez®, Paroil®, and Doverguard products are used in intumescent flame retardant coatings. Chlorez® products improve hardness, while Paroil® and Doverguard products plasticize the coating.
  • For water-based coatings, the Paroil® and Doverguard products can be readily emulsified. Pre-dispersed chlorinated alkanes are also available in the Doversperse product line.
  • Chlorez®, Paroil®, and Doverguard products can also be considered as cost effective alternatives for brominated flame retardants in coatings and adhesives.
  • For more information on Dover Chemical's flame retardants, please refer to the products page for the Chlorez®, Paroil®, Doverguard, and Doversperse products.

Improved Adhesion
  • Formulation with Paroil®, Chlorez® and Doversperse products generally improves adhesion and reduces moisture vapor transmission. In many formulations, these products improve polar adhesion and are often used when adhesion-to-metal or other non-porous surfaces are difficult to achieve.

Water & Chemical Resistance
  • The Paroil®, Chlorez® and Doversperse products have beneficial effects for resistance to chemicals and sea water.
  • The Chlorez® products are also low-cost extenders for expensive vehicle solids. Up to 20% of epoxy, chlorinated rubber, etc. can be replaced.

  • Antioxidants can be added to powder and coil coating formulations to prevent discoloration and loss of physical properties.
Emulsion Stability
  • Milidin trifunctional amines provide emulsion stability and long term pH control for water emulsions.
  • Milidin products can also aid in pigment dispersion and act as a thickener activators
