This study comprehensively evaluated novel, ultra-low-VOC 1K and 2K waterborne floor-coating systems designed to provide eco-friendly, lower-VOC alternatives to traditional solvent-based coatings. The materials employed in these innovative systems showed remarkable performance when subjected to industry-standard tests.
Two of the more common 2K coatings systems are polyurethane and epoxy. This and next month’s Formulating with Mike column will concentrate on urethanes, with this issue focusing on polyurethane polymers.
Dispersing agents that are suitable for all types of pigments create opportunities to simplify the process of producing high-performance waterborne pigment preparations without the need for extensive pre-testing phases.
Even though the coating properties of the new alkyd formulation matched perfectly the properties of the old formulation, what had been the unforeseen consequence of changing one oil for another in the formulation?
