Fresh and Clean: New multifunctional additive delivers unique coatings film properties

This is a Past Webinar

Chemists and formulators face challenges of choosing additives that can easily incorporate into water based, low Tg coatings. The additives must remain stable on the shelf and in the final formula. Ideally, the additives will deliver multifunctional benefits such as block resistance, dirt pick up resistance (DPUR), leveling, without the negative tradeoffs of gloss changes, poor adhesion, or lower durability.

DyStar has recently developed a new self-crosslinking additive technology that addresses some of these big concerns. The additive has smaller particle size, better stability, and different end properties in coatings than previous versions, specifically better DPUR.

In this webinar, knowledgeable professionals from DyStar presented an overview of the new DyStar additive, including data from several use cases including in architectural paint formulations and as a cementitious and wood sealer.

Why should you view this webinar?

Low or no-VOC targets for coatings manufacturers have created a formidable challenge for the formulator. The Lower Tg resins required result in softer films have higher tendencies for blocking, imprinting, tacky feel, and poor dirt pickup resistance (DPUR).

Through this webinar, one can learn about a new additive that can be used in popular acrylic latex resin paints, cementitious sealers, and likely extensions to other coatings platforms. DyStar experts presented recent research showing how we can enhance the properties of the final paint formulations using this new chemistry and discussed the following points:
  • Comparison of existing technology to the new version
  • A review of film properties achieved with the new technology
  • Specific dirt pickup resistance and blocking improvements with rational explanations
