Alkyd resin emulsification: New solution for waterborne formulations

This is a Past Webinar

In the traditional high gloss alkyd enamels, the conventional alkyd resins are dissolved in an organic solvent such as mineral spirit. Due to health and environmental concerns there is an increasing interest in waterborne alkyd enamels. Oil-in-water emulsions of long oil alkyd resins typically used in solvent-borne enamels are therefore an interesting alternative. Suitable emulsifying agents and special equipment which provide high-energy input are usually required to generate stable oil-in-water alkyd emulsions containing small particle size.

In this webinar APE-free emulsifying agents designed to promote easy emulsification of long oil alkyds using low shear mixing equipment will be presented.

These emulsifying agents have optimized ratios of anionic and non-ionic surfactants that remarkably allow water-in-oil emulsions of long oil alkyds to undergo phase inversion at 70 °C generating stable oil-in-water alkyd emulsions with high solid content, solid content up to 72 wt%, and small particle size, particle size of about 200 nm. All this while using low shear mixing equipment during the emulsification process.

Why should you view this webinar?

Alkyd resins are versatile, relatively low cost and well-known by formulators so how to preserve these successful characteristics while shifting to EHS friendly formulations?

In this webinar, you are going to learn how to generate a stable oil-in-water emulsion with small particle size using low shear equipment and Oxiteno's surfactants-OXIMULSION® 9000 Series.
