No more snail trails to see on dark coloured walls

Thursday, 3 October 2013

New binder technology avoids any spots left back from sunlight or animals.

Dr Stefan Kostrewa, The Dow Chemical Company, Germany will present a binder technology for outdoor paints at the European Coatings Conference "Facade coatings and plasters" on 29/30 October 2013 in Dusseldorf.
There is a sustained trend in Europe for architects and homeowners to increasingly request deeper, stronger colors for exterior masonry finishes. The typical issues with colored paints, especially with deep tones, such as color and gloss change, water whitening and snail-trails appearance are thus more frequent and need to be addressed. Each ingredient in the coating formulation must be carefully selected to reduce those issues and the binder choice is certainly important. Dow’s latest binder technologies were optimized to be formulated in colored exterior masonry paints and have demonstrated superior performance in comparison to conventional acrylic or styrene acrylic binders.
