Pigment Blacks in Waterborne Coatings

SpecialChem / Jun 11, 2003

The coatings industry grows at an annual rate of about 2%. Low-solvent or solvent-free coating systems are disproportionately growing at the expense of solvent-containing systems. Apart from powder coatings, high-solids and radiation-curing systems, environmentally friendly waterborne coatings are especially successful in industrialized countries. This trend is being led by the automotive industry, which favors low-polluting coating systems. Aqueous-based paints are relatively quickly realizable alternatives. They are becoming well established not only in the field of OEM (original equipment manufacturers) but are also gaining in importance in the repair industry. The increasingly strict environmental laws in Germany and the European Union require paint manufacturers to permanently allocate considerable adjustment expenditures. Not only is a decrease in emissions required, but applicability and the characteristics desired by the consumer must also be ensured. In this context, coloristic data demand special attention.
