AltaMer™—renewable monomers and oligomers

Ingevity has developed a selection of renewable monomers under the tradename AltaMer. These products are derived from rosin, a natural resin found in trees, isolated during the paper pulping process and purified in our biorefineries. Our resins include epoxy, (meth)acrylate and polyol functionalities. The di-terpene molecular structure of rosin provides various performance benefits including: steric hindrance, hydrophobicity, rigidness, excellent adhesion, high bio content and more.
