Two-way benefits
A newly introduced neutralising amine for waterborne coatings, secondary-butyl ethanolamine or sBEA, has an amphiphilic structure, through which it can assist dispersants in separating and binding topigment particles. Tests on a blue tinting base show that sBEA provides greater pigment efficiency and better flow properties than classical amines such as DMEA. more

In this technical paper recent developments in additives for use in parquet floor coatings are discussed. A siloxane has been introduced with both substrate wetting and defoaming properties, "waxalloys” and hard nanoparticles enhance scratch resistance, while a new dispersant assists in matting high solids coatings with silica. Tests on UV primers identified adhesion differences betweenwood species and some specific causes of adhesion problems. more

A European consortium known as Multiprotect has developed a range of nanoparticle-based corrosion protection systems in an attempt to replace both chromate pretreatments and hard chrome coatings.Various types of coating showed enhanced salt spray resistance and in some cases self-healing properties. Some systems have been applied successfully under industrial conditions. more
