Arkema Kynar Aquatec® at ABRAFATI 2013: Showcases its Innovative WB PVDF Latex Emulsions

Published on 2013-09-16. Author : SpecialChem

Based on 45 years' experience, Arkema has developed Kynar Aquatec® latex, a platform of latex emulsions for waterborne coatings.

Arkema's new innovative platform of water-based PVDF fluoropolymer latex emulsions are used by paint formulators to make premium weatherable water-based coatings.

Coatings formulated with these emulsions can provide the durability and performance of traditional solvent-based PVDF fluoropolymer coatings. They can easily be applied to a variety of substrates, including metals, plastics, wood, concrete, textiles and previously painted surfaces.

The extreme weatherability of a solvent-based PVDF fluoropolymer coating is now available in a VOC-compliant, field- or factory- applied, ambient air-dry system.

Additional benefits include tremendous resistance to dirt pick-up, outstanding water repellency, graffiti resistance and high initial and long term Total Solar Reflectance and Emissivity (cool roof).

Technical Presentation about "Platform of water-based PVDF fluoropolymer" (conference #83) is being held on September 16th from 10h55 until 11h45 at Auditory 1/ Resins and Emulsions.

Arkema-Coatex booth (Street 3 - F Avenue) at ABRAFATI 2013 Painting Show, from 16-18 September at Transamérica Expo Center in São Paulo.
