Summary

Alkyd resins are polyesters of at least one dibasic acid, one polyol with 3 or more hydroxyl groups, and fatty acids. Oxidizing alkyds dry by autoxidation. Non-oxidizing alkyds are used either as plasticizers or with cross-linkers that react with free hydroxy groups of the alkyds. Alkyds can be modified to styrenated alkyds and silicone alkyds. Epoxy esters and uralkyds are related oxidizing resins.
