Rhodia Introduces Rhodoline® OTE Additives to extend open time in Waterborne Coating Formulations

Published on 2010-03-25. Author : SpecialChem

PARIS, (France); CRANBURY NJ (USA) -- Global specialty chemicals producer Rhodia has introduced Rhodoline® OTE, APE-free and zero-VOC additives, that extend waterborne coating open time two to four fold and enables the formulation of highly performing low to zero VOC coatings. This low odor eco-friendly solution has been developed to design sustainable coatings, being compliant with Green Seal (GS-11) or EU eco-label requirement.

Increasing open time gives painters more time to work overlays seamlessly or touch up paint to correct imperfections such as drips and brush marks.

In addition, Rhodoline® OTE provides other high performance benefits: it enhances gloss, boosts stain and scrub resistance and delivers freeze-thaw stability.

Rhodoline® OTE is an easy-to-use solution for formulators, suitable for a wide range of polymer binders: acrylic, styrene acrylic, vinyl acrylic, ethylene vinyl acetate.

"The challenge of coating formulators is to design eco-friendly paints without compromising performance. With Rhodoline® OTE, Rhodia is taking up that challenge by proposing a solution that boosts open time performance while enabling formulators to develop "green label" compliant coatings." Thierry Fayand, Coatings Global Business Director of Rhodia.
