Waterborne Symposium

Join Clariant at the 49th Annual Waterborne symposium where coatings formulators, research and development scientists/chemists, technical managers, academicians and students, andcoatings applicators/technicians get together to learn about the most challenging aspects in the coatings industry.


Influence of different binder types on the wet scrub resistance of organosilicate paints under different storage time and temperature conditions

The suitability of vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) binders for decorative organosilicate coatings is often debated. Their tendency to saponify due to the high pH conditions can lead to stability issues and loss of performance such as lower wet scrub resistance. To support paints and coatings formulators in their binder decision-making, we investigate the influence of binder choice on wet scrub resistance of organosilicate paint under various storage conditions, comparing four VAE binders also to the performance of several styrene acrylate binders.
