Posits that, because of environmental awareness and concern for our surroundings, we should be using more friendly technologies such as radiation curing and waterborne systems instead of solvent‐based formulas. The market is getting bigger for these “friendly” systems and discusses here the pros...
Discusses latexes (which consist of aqueous colloidal dispersions of polymer particles) as the basis of water‐based coatings ‐ which are commonly, but wrongly, known as emulsion paints. Looks at the different processes and regulations in industrial use and the challenges for the future.
Epoxy resin emulsions are used in water‐based coatings for surface protection of concrete and metal. An unfortunate drawback for most emulsions is their poor freeze‐thaw stability. Epoxy emulsions are indeed unstable below 0°C, ‐5°C or ‐10°C, depending on the type of resin. In this study, other...
Describes new ideas in codes and technology related to the pressure to find safe, clean alternatives to traditional systems for coding and product marking on films, foils and other materials for the food and pharmaceutical industries.
The UK Environmental Protection Act imposes very strict controls on paint and other coating systems. These include the reduction and eventual elimination of volatile organic compounds (VOCs); the elimination of offensive odours; and much tighter controls on waste disposal. Ecopaint is a...
