Using Vercet lactides as a component in your resins enables unique properties including a new way of creating low VOC solvent-borne coatings for substrates such as wood & metal.

Performance in Coatings

  • Low viscosity alkyds for lower VOC's
  • Improved flexibility
  • Excellent substrate adhesion
  • Superior abrasion resistance
  • Improved ethanol spot resistance
  • Pigmentable
  • Renewably-sourced building block

Markets & Substrates

  • Furniture
  • Flooring
  • Architecture
  • Decorative
  • Wood
  • Metal
    • Anti-corrosion layers
    • Primers


While most solutions using Vercet chemistries are custom products, we do have a few standard grades available. These Vercet lactides are high-purity di-lactones useful for the synthesis of polymers, copolymers, and grafted substrates. They are also useful as reactive chemical intermediates for other synthesis and manufacturing purposes.

  • L50 - Polymer grade lactide with extra low D-Lactyl.
  • L100 - Polymer grade lactide with low D-Lactyl.
  • M700 - Polymer grade meso-lactide with typically >45% D-HLa.
  • M3002 - Reagent grade lactide with typically >35% D-HLa.
