An increased demand for new and improved coating systems, both due to environmental as well as performance reasons, have appeared during the last decades. Techniques such low temperature curing powder coatings, radiation curable systems, and high solids have gained an increased interest and obtained significant market shares. Although improved in many aspects, these systems still have limited use in certain applications due to technical reasons. One way to change the properties of thermoset resins that has obtained significant interest during the last decade is by changing the molecular architecture of the resin. An example of polymers which exhibit different properties compared to conventional linear structures are highly branched, dendritic, polymers [1-3]. These polymers, for example, exhibit a higher solubility and lower melt viscosity compared to their linear counterparts. They can also be tailored with respect to functionality and polarity to adjust the properties for certain applications. Coating resins based on hyperbranched polymers have been described both for liquid UV-curable systems as well as powder coatings [4-6]. This presentation will focus on how properties of resins based on dendritic polymers can be tailored and how this can applied to coating systems such as powder coatings, radiation curable resins and no-solvent liquid systems. The correlation between resin structure and its properties both before and after cure will be discussed.
