Next generation styrene-acrylic binders


Dr. Thomas Bernhofer, Synthomer


The use of a styrene-acrylic dispersion as binder in decorative wall paint has been the norm in many regions thanks to its intrinsic high water resistance and outstanding pigment loading capability. Styrene-acrylic dispersions with a low minimum film formation temperature (MFFT) based on styrene and butyl acrylate monomers have made a good contribution to reducing the need for plasticisers or solvents in film formation, so that the finished paints meet EU volatile organic compound (VOC) emission standard – 2004/42/EC. While the approach has been accepted as the state of the art solution for many years, paint manufacturers are continuously searching for improvements to meet higher market requirements and ever-increasing regulatory standards.
