Additives for water-borne coatings


Additives for Water-borne Coatings

Water-borne systems are the coatings of the future. The market is developing an insatiable appetite for ecologically sound coatings based on renewable raw materials. The demands on coating performance are at least as high as those on environmental compatibility. Additives help to protect the environment by effectively reducing the use of organic solvents. Many of today’s water-borne coatings could not be formulated without them. When incorporated into water-borne paints, coatings and printing inks, they enhance both the production process and the performance of the applied inks and coating materials. Additives for water-borne coatings is a must read for formulators wishing to brush up on water-borne coating systems, as well as experts seeking to have detailed knowledge at their finger tips.
