High Performance Waterborne Polyurethane Dispersions for Wood Coatings

The demand for high performance, lower VOC wood coatings – with even higher performance requirements – is steadily increasing. High performance coatings consequently require high performance binders. Michelman’s newest waterborne, solvent free Polyurethan-hybrid dispersion Ecrothan® 2020 was developed for coatings, which require maximum longevity in high-end finishes in wood coatings.  Hybrid acrylic polyurethane polymers combine and...

Mechanisms of Radical Curing Chemistry

Radical curing technologies have seen an increase in market share recently, often replacing traditional emulsion polymer formulation. However formulating radical curing products often requires a different approach to traditional formulations and rely on in situ synthesis. Alongside Oligomer selection, understanding the mechanisms of radical polymerization of oligomers and the potential pitfalls thereof are key to... Read more »

Architectural Coatings – Innovative formulation guidelines to meet regulatory requirements

In the field of waterborne Architectural Coatings for façade and interior wall paints, regulatory requirements like Eco labelling or the reduction of VOC’s are becoming more stringent. These restrictions imposed limits on the formulation freedom for the formulator. Formerly suitable raw materials can no longer be used – however, changes to the formulation should not... Read more »

Continuous Innovations in Waterborne Epoxy Coatings

Waterborne epoxy systems have now proven their ability to replace or even outperform standard solvent borne technologies in many coating applications. They are thus ready to meet a growing global demand for environmentally benign product solutions, without compromising performances.  Three major routes for the growth of waterborne epoxy technologies are cost reduction, lower Volatile Organic...

Application of Hydrophobic Ultra-Low Viscosity HDI Polyisocyanate for Water-Borne 2KPU Industrial Coatings and Polyaspartic Coatings

This presentation will show how low viscosity HDI polyisocyanates will perform in water-borne 2KPU and polyaspartic application. The use of hydrophobic polyisocyanates in water-borne 2KPU applications usually requests high amount of co-solvents due to their poor compatibility. Thereof our original ultra-low viscosity HDI polyisocyanate has been developed to bridge all these gaps. It will be... Read more »

Networking with Polythiols – A Technology Introduction

Polythiols – SH‐functional molecules ‐ have gained significant interest in the coatings and adhesive industry as alternatives to conventional OH‐ or NH‐functional binders or hardeners for isocyanate or epoxy resins. Polythiols are a class of solvent‐free multifunctional thiols with a wide variety of viscosities and reactivities that allow the adjustment of curing speeds and properties... Read more »

Microfibrillated Cellulose: A Novel Multifunctional Additive for Coatings

There is a growing interest to shift from solvent borne systems to waterborne systems due to the environmental as well legislation reasons. However, the change is not always straightforward and often new technologies are needed in order to obtain the same performance as with solvent borne systems. Exilva (cellulose fibrils) is a new performance enhancer... Read more »

Formulation & Optimisation with Curran®; Solvent and Titanium Dioxide reduction.

With the fluctuation of Titanium prices, the ability to have a cost-effective formulation becomes ever more important. The ability of Curran® to significantly improve Opacity, can allow for up to a 6% reduction of TiO2 within a paint formulation which inherently could provide a more cost-effective paint. Further reductions of raw materials such as solvents... Read more »

Laponite – Speciality Additives for Rheology Control of Waterborne Systems

The Laponite range of additives is perhaps best known for its rheology modification properties in aqueous based formulations, enabling the formulator to exploit the extremely shear-thinning and thixotropic properties of these products to provide effective suspension, application viscosity and storage stability in formulations that range from high viscosity gels that can be sprayed to pourable...

New Non-Isocyanate-Curing High Solid Coating Raw Materials Provide Superior Performance for Long-Lasting Substrate Protection

Legal restrictions are getting tighter all over the world. Next to regulations for solvent evaporation during coating application (VOC) in Asia, US and Europe new discussions will appear. State-of-the-art protective coatings will also be discussed regarding their ingredients because of a higher potential risk to humans and environment. To help coatings formulator to find a...

High End Aluminium Pigments as an Alternative to Electrochemical Chrome Plating

Metalure and Silvershine are ultra-brilliant aluminium pigment dispersions creating the highest level of reflectance in coatings and inks. In a special physical vapour deposition (PVD) process, extremely thin aluminium pigments, which are free of lubricants, are manufactured. These platelets have an uniform, smooth surface exhibiting perfect non-leafing properties that result in a mirror-like effect. This effect cannot... Read more »
