Latex Literature
BASF: A new literature system is available to help paint formulators achieve the highest performance possible from their low- to zero-VOC architectural coatings. The system makes it easy for formulation scientists to quickly determine the Acronal Optive or Acronal latex polymer needed to achieve high performance as well as meet new, stringent VOC requirements set by state regulatory authorities.

UV-Curable Resin
Cytec Industries Inc.: UCECOAT® 7631 waterborne UV-curable resin is an aliphatic polyurethane dispersion that offers superior weathering resistance as well as outstanding chemical and mechanical resistance for wood joinery and other outdoor applications. The translucent dispersion is non-irritant (Xi-free), low-VOC and has good colloidal stability.

Cleaning with Light
KRONOS: KRONOS vlp 7000, vlp 7001, vlp 7100 and vlp 7101 visible light photocatalyst compounds are designed to achieve maximum degradation of atmospheric pollutants and direct-contact organic compounds in the presence of both visible light and UV radiation. The resulting innocuous materials can be washed away by rain, absorbed by vegetation or blown away by the wind.

Coating Additive
Daikin: Optool DAC high-perfoemance additive is mainly aimed at UV-curable hard coats. It offers a unique range of stay-clean/easy-clean performance, especially for high-gloss finishes. Adding a small amount of DAC renders the surface of the coating highly resistant to fingerprints and markers, oil and water.
