Emupol CW Range

Dunwood Polymers are pleased to announce the launch of a full range of Cavity Wall adhesives with a full range of chemistry. To complement our very successful CW VV 320006 we have expanded the range with an SBR, VaE and a StAc.

With the ever expanding (pardon the pun) range of EPS and in particular it’s surface treatment, we have found it necessary to develop other chemistries to suit particular bead types. Each of the grades has been specifically formulated for the Cavity Wall market and we would be pleased to discuss their merits in any bonded bead system.

Emupol Range

Dunwood are pleased to announce the launch of 3 product groups under the Emupol brand.

  • Emupol V – Vinylics
  • Emupol A – Acrylics
  • Emupol S – SBR’s

We have developed a nomenclature that will help with product selection, an example of which is:
Emupol V 531429

  • V denotes it is a vinylic, in actual fact it is a Va VeoVa
  • The first 2 digits denote its solids content is 53%
  • The third and fourth digits denote its minimum film forming temperature (MFFT °C) is 14°C
  • Finally, digits five and six denote its mid-point glass transition temperature (Tg °C) is 29°C

Emupol V 531429 is a perfect slot-in for Emultex VV673 or indeed Vinamul 6975.

The nomenclature provides a starting point for comparison which will be supplemented with more fundamentals such as:

  • Viscosity
  • pH
  • particle size
  • chemistry

We are busy populating the data on our website and constructing a product selector based on fundamental properties.

Power Outage

On the 17th of September, Dunwood Polymer Services was affected by a power cut when Northern Powergrid shut of power to our local area. This impacted on both our warehouse and our offices, effectively closing us down for the day.

During this period our standard telephone number (01423 358106) was unavailable and even though our 0800 telephone number remained in operation we appreciate that many of you would not have realised this or even known the number, and for that we apologise.

Our free phone number (0800 7076542) can easily and quickly be diverted to a new location enabling us to keep it operational under almost all circumstances however our standard, 01423 number is ISDN and as such not so easy to divert.

Allow us to assure you that everything is back to normal, power is restored and it is business as usual at Dunwood Polymer Services.

Synthomer – UK distribution changes

Following the announcement made by Synthomer in November 2013 we can now formally advise that Dunwood Polymers will hand–over the distribution of Synthomer products to Cornelius Plc with effect 1st July 2014.

We are pleased to advise that we have reached an agreement with Cornelius to facilitate their warehousing functions for Synthomer products and that strategic stocks will be in place for July requirements.

We have enjoyed our time working with Synthomer, who have and continue to undergo significant change. It very much depends upon perspective as to how you view change and here at Dunwood we welcome the opportunity to expand our independence and Own Brand label.

We will write to you under separate cover to inform you of our future plans re Chemistry available under our Emupol brand. In the meantime we can ease the transition in July with significant stocks available in June at discounted rates.

We would like to thank you for your valued and very much appreciated business and we look forward to servicing your requirements in the future.
