Golden Gate Society for Coatings Technology & Pacific Northwest Society for Coating Technology Annual Meeting

Various Locations - April 14 - 16, 2014


HALOX® Technical Development Manager, Nathan Kofira will be traveling to California, Oregon and Vancouver to educate members of both the Golden Gate Society for Coatings Technology(GGSCT) and the Pacific Northwest Society for Coatings Technology (PNWSCT) about Tannin Stain Inhibition with an abstract presentation.

Abstract: "Formulating for Tannin Stain Inhibition."
The advent of water-based resins for the architectural market has paved the way for new challenges associated with coating wood substrates. Wood is prone to rotting, warping, cracking, peeling and growing microorganisms. Oil and water soluble wood extracts such as tannic acids are an aesthetic  concern in water-based paints. Customers applying water-based paints to wood know first-hand that water brings (“bleeds”) out the soluble molecules into the topcoat, causing the paint to discolor and look unsightly. Improvements to  the appearance of wood coatings using multi-valent cations and proteins will be discussed and the necessary formulating techniques to go along with this approach outlined.
