Read our New CoatingsTech Article on “How to Achieve Faster Dry Times and More with High-Performance Catalysts in Low-VOC Alkyd Coatings”
January 20, 2022 | News
The January 2022 issue of CoatingsTech features a new article from our technical service and regulatory teams on the benefits of using High-Performance Catalysts (HPCs) in low-VOC alkyd coatings.
The alkyd coating market continues to face increasing challenges as government bodies and environmental agencies establish new volatile organic content (VOC) and regulatory restrictions. In many cases, reformulation is necessary to meet low-VOC requirements, which may cause adverse effects in the final coating, such as slow dry times, increasingly complex formulations, and poor coating performance.
Formulators can overcome such performance obstacles in sustainable coatings by using the proper HPC. This unique technology can meet VOC requirements, outperform standard metal carboxylates across multiple resin platforms, and may eliminate the need for complex drier packages.
Read the article to find out how HPCs can sustainably enhance performance in water-reducible, waterborne, and high-solids solvent borne alkyd resin formulations.
