Polymeric flow and levelling agents for water-borne coatings

Whether it is about decorative paints or industrial coatings, waterborne finishes need to achieve a perfect surface appearance and optimal mechanical properties. During the drying of waterborne coatings, some irregularities or textures can develop on the surface, resulting in coating defects such as craters, orange-peel, pinholes and de-wetting effects.

Abstract

No more ups and downs by mastering levelling of waterborne coatings 

Authors: Xavier Franc, Anne Odoux, Nick Wood

Whether it is about decorative paints or industrial coatings, waterborne finishes need to achieve a perfect surface appearance and optimal mechanical properties. During the drying of waterborne coatings, some irregularities or textures can develop on the surface, resulting in coating defects such as craters, orange-peel, pinholes and de-wetting effects.
Perfect flow, levelling and substrate wetting are the key to achieving perfect surface appearance.  These properties are directly related to control of the surface tension at both the liquid-air and liquid-substrate interfaces. Avoiding negative side-effects such as loss of inter-coat adhesion and stabilization of foam is also an important goal. Additional advantage is the ability to improve the open-time which is a real issue with VOC-free water-borne coatings. A new series of VOC-free surfactant-like polymeric additives combining flow, levelling and substrate wetting are a significant help for the paint formulator.

Xavier Franc

Business Manager Additives for Coatings and Printing Inks, Synthron

Xavier started his carrier in R&D cosmetic industry laboratory after studying chemistry and biochemistry. After few years he turns his carrier to sales and marketing in coatings industry, keeping a permanent technical and laboratory training and experience. In the years 1990, he joined the young company additives producer EFKA-Additives as technical Advisor for French speaking countries and after took responsibilities as business development manager Additives for Coatings, printing Inks and composites materials. He joins Synthron in 2010 as Business Manager Additives for Coatings and Printing Inks.

Anne Odoux

Additives coatings application laboratory, Synthron

With a formulation chemistry training at the ITECH Lyon institute and she is Chemical engineer graduated, Anne begins her professional life as a formulator of high-performance finishes for resilient and wood floors within a important French medium size wood parquet specialist producer. Practicing in the formulation laboratory, she learns the complexity of coating compositions, the role and the influence of a large variety of raw materials.
She joins Synthron in 2020, in the Additives coatings application laboratory. In the R&D department, she is in charge of the additive’s development and coatings application studies.

Nick Wood, Synthron

Nick Wood

Account Manager, Synthron

After studying chemistry, Nick gained a grounding in coatings technology as an industrial paints formulator. He then transitioned to the raw materials side of the industry, specialising in technical service, technical marketing and technical sales. Coatings additives have been a constant focus; Nick has held technical manager positions for Tego in both the UK and North America, as well as other roles involving additives either directly or indirectly as a distributor. He also spent several years as EMEA coatings technical service manager for minerals producer Imerys. Nick has been looking after the UK market for Synthron since 2018.
