Gabriel’s Phenoxy™ PK™ has the broadest range and longest experience in phenoxy resin industry. Phenoxy™ PK has ductile, amorphous, thermoplastic polymers that contain excellent thermal stability, adhesive strength, flexibility, impact strength, and vapor barrier properties. Phenoxy™ resins may be crosslinked by reacting its hydroxyl functional groups with isocyanates, melamine resins, or phenolic resins. Crosslinked Phenoxy™ resins exhibit excellent chemical resistance, hardness, and adhesion on many substrates including steel, aluminum, glass, and carbon fibers, and plastics such as nylon and polyester (PET). Phenoxy™ PKHH may also be formulated in single-pack epoxies containing latent hardeners, such as dicyandiamide, providing improved toughness and adhesive strength on substrates when properly cured. Phenoxy™ PKHH is soluble in many polar, aprotic solvents such as MEK, cyclohexanone, and glycol ethers.

Enviromentally Responsible Products & Processes

We manufacture our products to make the biggest impact in the markets we serve, while also leaving the smallest footprint on our planet. Products such as Ranbar® use low-cost water reducible technology and high solids VOC compliant resins to create greener solvents. Also, everything from labor, materials, and our manufacturing processes are analyzed for ways to increase customer efficiency and minimize waste. Gabriel’s “Operation Safety Cares” initiative revolves around 5 pillars: Community. Accountability. Responsibility. Emphasis. And Safety. Each one has specific goals that either meet or exceed our stakeholder’s requirements and specifications.
