A series of reactive water-based silicone emulsions are evaluated in coating systems. These emulsions can perform as coatings themselves, but are more typically effective as additives in other water-borne systems.

Improvements in a wide range of performance properties, such as mar, slip, stain resistance and flexibility are achieved with these emulsions. Simple post addition can be utilized in other waterborne coating systems such as PUDs and Acrylic Latex systems.
