Novel Low-VOC Soya Polyester Acrylic Hybrid Emulsion Coatings

SpecialChem / Jun 3, 2009

In 2007, the United States paint market was approximately 1.50 billion gallons: 1.0 billion gallons was waterborne and 500 million gallons solventborne. The Architectural (Decorative) market is approximately 900 million gallons of this volume, and is dominated by waterborne coatings. Upcoming VOC regulations in the United States, OTC (Ozone Transport Commission) in the East Coast states and SCAQMD (South Coast Air Quality Management District) in California continue to further tighten the VOC limits for various coating types especially architectural and industrial coatings. These regulations have necessitated a search for alternate VOC-compliant waterborne technologies, which perform like solventborne coatings. Today, latex emulsions and polyurethane dispersions dominate waterborne coatings; whereas solventborne coatings are dominated by alkyds, alkyd acrylic copolymers, urethanes and oil-modified urethanes. These lower VOC limits are forcing coating formulators to high-solids, water-reducible alkyds and latex emulsion technologies...
