Water-borne coatings

| 22 May 2019 |

Better air

The transition from solvent-borne to water-borne polymer dispersions is anything but new. Yet the changeover is far from complete and not easy to achieve. The properties of water are quite different from those of water-borne systems, which in turn are different from those of organic solvents. Governments and public opinion are increasingly pushing for reduced VOC levels. Sometimes a high-solids system will do the job, but often that is just not enough.

This seminar will give you a comprehensive overview of the regulations governing water-borne coatings and explain why even water-borne systems are often not totally free of organic solvents. It will also show you pitfalls that await formulators when they are developing new water-borne systems. And of course, you will discover which raw materials are ideal for water-borne coatings and the current technology trends.

Your key-learnings:

  • VOC, REACH and other statutory influences on coatings development
  • Does waterborne really mean totally solvent-free?
  • Does waterborne really mean totally solvent-free?
  • What to watch out for when increasing the water content of a coating
  • Which raw materials are best suited to this type of coating technology?
  • What to watch out for when developing a new waterborne coating
  • Where waterborne coatings have become established, where there is still need for action, and why
  • The current focus of technological development
