Switching from Solventborne to Waterborne Coatings in Industrial Applications

On-Demand Course

Recorded on Sep 15, 2021

Smoothly switch from solvent-borne to waterborne coatings & meet the low VOC regulation requirements by understanding different techniques used to formulate waterborne coatings.

Keith Moody, who has successfully put in place many Waterborne technologies replacing Solvent-borne systems, will lay light on:
  • How waterborne polymers must be handled in plants
  • What equipment will be needed to process these systems
  • How coating polymers (alkyds, polyesters, acrylic-epoxy hybrids…) are made, formulated and applied in industrial applications.

Why should you view this course?

Regulatory restrictions in each region is pushing for healthier and cleaner coatings with lower and lower amounts of VOC. No doubt, waterborne coatings are the primary way to meet these regulations.

However, without guidance, making the shift from solvent borne to waterborne can be tricky! Handling wetting and surface tension, corrosion and flash rusting… for waterborne coatings are far different from solvent-borne coatings.

Additionally going for trial & error or hiring expensive consultants will only be time-consuming & costly. Join this course to:

  • Understand how to formulate waterborne coatings using different techniques (use of external surfactants & emulsion polymerization, changing the backbone of the solvent borne resin…)

  • Shorten your R&D time and swiftly shift to waterborne coatings by understanding how coating polymers (alkyds, polyesters, acrylic-epoxy hybrids…) are made, formulated and applied in industrial applications.

  • Understand with examples from real-life industry applications: aqueous dispersions in metal, hybrid polymer systems in coil, container coatings for metal, general industrial applications of latex emulsion polymers…

  • Learn how to tackle problems like wetting and surface tension, corrosion & flash rusting, curing, heating, rheology, which binders to choose for formulations…
