BASF launches new low-to-zero VOC latex literature for architectural coatings

Published on 2007-06-08. Author : SpecialChem

CHARLOTTE, NC -- BASF has launched a new literature system that is designed to help paint formulators achieve the highest performance possible from their low- to zero-volatile organic compound (VOC) architectural coatings by using BASF's extensive line of Acronal Optive® all-acrylic and Acronal® styrene acrylic latex polymers.

Employing the theme, "Opening the door to High Performance at Low VOC", the new literature system makes it easy for formulation scientists to quickly determine the Acronal Optive® or Acronal® latex polymer needed to achieve high performance, as well as meet new, stringent VOC requirements set by state regulatory authorities.

The information system includes the following components:

  • A tri-fold pocket brochure that summarizes the full line of acrylic and styrene acrylic latex polymers for paint;
  • Single-page (front & back) technical data sheets;
  • 8- to 12-page brochures with detailed performance data;
  • Starter formulations;
  • A loose-leaf binder to house the collateral system; and, if requested,
  • A flash drive containing electronic versions of all print material.

Brochures with detailed performance data are available for Acronal Optive® 110, 130, 230, 350, 410, and 510. Technical data sheets are available for Acronal Optive® 110, 120, 220, 230, 350, 410, 500 and 600 all-acrylic latex polymers, and for Acronal® 296 D, NS 567, and S 760 styrene acrylic latex polymers.
