Waterbornes show high weathering resistance

Thursday, 1 April 2010

The growing enthusiasm for waterborne gloss coatings can be attributed in large measure to advances in performance. Due to the trend away from emission-producing solventbornes please read here aboutlatest test results of the alternative waterbased paints.

In the next European Coatings JOURNAL issue 04/2010 Andrew Trapani and his colleagues from Dow Coating Materials present resluts from exposure tests on a site subject to severe weather conditions. Multi-coat decorative paint systems were tested on wooden panels. The tests lasted some three years. Most waterbrone paints showed better performance than the solventborne alkyds, while a self-crosslinking waterborne acrylic performed best. A life cycle analyses gave very good results for this paint, due mainly to its greater durability.
