Rohm and Haas Introduces Avanse™ ST-410 Emulsion New Technology for Semi-transparent Deck and Siding Stains

Published on 2008-04-21. Author : SpecialChem

PHILADELPHIA -- Rohm and Haas has launched an environmentally-advanced, innovative binder, Avanse™ ST-410 emulsion, to the North American coatings market. This new high-performance, 100% acrylic, water-borne polymer can be formulated to meet the toughest VOC standards and still outperform traditional solvent and waterborne semi-transparent stain technologies.

Semi-transparent stains based on Avanse™ ST-410 emulsion do not require coalescent or heavy metal driers; they are easy to apply; and they enhance the appearance of new and weathered wood with a long-lasting finish. The combination of morphology and unique particle stabilization maximizes the flow and lapping characteristics during application, while building early resistance properties upon drying.

Avanse™ ST-410 emulsion is the first emulsion for semi-transparent deck and siding stains based on proprietary Avanse™ technology that was developed by Rohm and Haas. Avanse™ technology raises high performance to a new level allowing paint and coatings manufacturers to provide tough, durable coatings that meet the most stringent VOC and environmental standards.
