This article discusses what VOCs are, where they come from, and why high-solids coatings are so good at reducing VOC emissions.
Managing color can be challenging, but with a comprehensive digital color management system in place, it is possible to achieve accurate color quickly, sustainably and cost efficiently.
Water-based epoxy resin and curing agents have been developed that can used together as a system to provide corrosion protection coatings with low VOC content, less than 100 grams per liter.
A new binder for water-based wood trim paints is based on a heterogeneous acrylic polymer structure. It combines excellent flexibility and high blocking resistance, while maintaining low VOC content.
Perfectly safe and produced from an annually renewable feedstock, isosorbide has a unique combination of properties that offers excellent potential for a range of CASE applications.
A multi-step continuous process has been developed to convert renewably sourced furfural to 1,5-Pentanediol (1,5-PDO), which is a low-cost renewable replacement for 1,6-HDO, a diol intermediate currently used to produce coatings, adhesives and…
Development of eco-friendly, sustainable and high-solid (low-VOC) coatings have received a lot of attention due to environmental concerns and legislative issues.
Although often not appreciated, it is important to recognize is that how you conduct your process has a profound impact on where the acid groups reside and therefore on your final product properties.
Synthomer has developed a novel styrene acrylic binder with excellent water resistance, scrub resistance and hiding power, and that potentially enables the paint and coatings industry to optimize binder and pigment dosage, resulting in paint p…
The average molecular weight of a latex can be influenced by a number of factors, but it is often not realized that the number of particles in the latex (which is directly related to particle size) is important in determining molecular weight….
