Waterborne Resins

Using water as a solvent to meet high regulatory demands.

Waterborne resins use water as a solvent to disperse a resin, thus making these resins environmental friendly and low in toxicity and flammability. Traditional waterborne resins were water reducible resins, which are products dissolved at high solids content. More modern products are diluted in water already in form of delivery, many still contain small amounts of solvent to help film building and production process.

The trend is to reduce the content of coalescing and process solvents even more, often targeting close to zero VOC in order to meet regulatory demands in critical markets.
