Waterborne coatings 2013
Constant dripping wears away the stone
Waterborne coatings are no longer an exotic technology. They have become a common method to protect surfaces, especially for architectural indoor coatings waterborne have experienced a high growth rate. Rising concerns about the environment and VOC legislation in many countries have resulted in the replacement of many solventborne systems with waterborne systems. The European Coatings Conference "Waterborne coatings” highlighted the latest advances from relevant areas of chemistry that address the special needs of these coatings in different industries. International representatives from both industry and academia presented their latest research results.
Topics covered during the conference:
- Nanoparticles as non covalent x linkers for PUD
- The choice of silicone slip additives and an informed choice for the formulator
- High performing formulation additives for waterborne paints and coatings
- Recent developments in the use of Benzoate low VOC coalescents in latex architectural paint
