Hydroxypivalic acid neopentylglycolester, HPN is a building block for saturated polyesters, unsaturated polyesters and polyurethanes. HPN is suitable for polyesters for solvent-borne paints (stoving enamels for can-& coil-coating, automotive coatings, coatings for industrial applications) and for two-component paints (plastic coatings, repair coatings). HPN polyesters are used preferentially used for waterborne paints, but also suitable for polyesters in powder coatings.

HPN shows high reactivity for esterification and trans-esterification. HPN introduces optimal solubility and compatibility in polyester molecules and suppress crystallinity effectively. HPN improves the hydrolytical resistance of polyester molecules, particularly in waterborne coating
