Medium oil alkyd resins are those that have an oil content between 40% and 55%. They have a faster drying time than long oi resins and an excellent gloss level. They are soluble in both aliphatic type solvents (white spirit) and more strong solvents like xylene or toluene. Medium oil alkyd resins are mainly used in:

  • Industrial use paints
