Waterbased Acrylates for Decorative Coatings

Aqueous polyacrylates, as binders, dispersing resins and thickening polymers, are nowadays impossible to do without as raw materials in the paints and coatings industry. Since their introduction in the 1950s and 60s, straight acrylic and styrene acrylic dispersions have established themselves as environment-friendly, high-performace alternatives to the solvent-borne, air-drying alkyd resin binders used principally before. The particularly wide performance spectrum and high level of variability of the polyacrylates has enabled the propagation and consistent ongoing development of this product class as binders for coating materials. This book gives an overall view of the preparation and properties of aqueous acrylic dispersions and also the special features pertaining to their use in the architectural coatings sector. Following a general introduction to dispersions and emulsion paints manufacture at the beginning of the book, specialized chapters give a deeper insight into the diverse products such as primers, masonry paints, interior paints, plasters, wood coatings and gloss emulsion paints. The book presents an picture of the preparation of acrylic binders and the formulation of architectural paints. It is aimed both at students and newcomers to the paints and coatings field as well as at experienced dispersion users and practitioners in the paints and coatings industry.
