Formulating Fundamentals for Water-Reducible and Alkyd Latex Coatings

Abstract:

This course discusses the fundamental aspects of formulating water-reducible and alkyd latex coatings. Polymer structures are detailed highlighting the differences between solvent alkyds, water-reducible alkyds, and alkyd latex. Coating formulating parameters for both water-reducible and alkyd latex are provided.  These include pigment selection and incorporation, choice and level of co-solvents, and additives needed to meet critical performance requirements.
