Abstract

Low molecular weight oligomers of dimethyl 2,2-dimethyl-4-methylene glutarate and neo-pentyl glycol have been synthesized. These oligomers were chain-extended with select diacids and diols to polyesters that were used as pigment binders in paint formulations. Such paints were shown to possess superior detergent resistance when compared to paints formulated using pigment binders that did not contain dimethyl 2,2-dimethyl-4-methylene glutarate. © 1993 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
