Due to environmental regulations waterborne coatings are now a major segment of the coatings industry. Water presents numerous challenges for the formulator due to its high surface tension.

Formulating issues typically encountered are:

-Substrate wetting

-Stable pigment dispersion

-Proper rheology

-Surface defects

-Defoaming and air release

However if the issues aren’t resolved in the proper order the result can be a poor quality product. By following a prescribed step-by-step method of screening additives in the development of the formula a number of problems can be resolved in an orderly manner.

In this presentation topics to be discussed are the order of evaluation and addition for surface additives, pigment dispersing aids, rheological products and defoamers to provide the formulator with the best waterborne coating.

Various issues / defects will be covered as to why they develop and how to eliminate them along with screening test procedures to improve overall quality.
