HALOX® will participate in the 56th Annual Sink of Swim Symposium next month!

Did you miss your chance to listen to HALOX® present “New Developments in Formulating for Tannin Stain Inhibition” during the technical portion of the SSCT’s Annual Meeting in April? If you did, HALOX® has good news for you. You will have another opportunity to get caught up!

HALOX® will be presenting the paper again next month at the Cleveland Coating Society’s 56th Annual Sink or Swim Symposium, June 4-5, at the Holiday Inn in Independence, Ohio. Our Project Chemist, Jessica Olmos, is slotted to present on Wednesday, June 4th at 1 PM.

Abstract: The advent of water-based resins for the architectural market have 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 a problem for water-based paints. Customers applying water-based paints to wood know firsthand that water brings (“bleeds”) out the soluble stains to the topcoat and causes the paint to discolor and look unsightly. Tannin stain blocking additives were developed to augment resin technology in stopping the migration of these soluble stains to the surface of the paint. Several technologies were developed to improve the chelation mechanism using multi-valent cations and the necessary formulating techniques to go along with this approach.

HALOX® will also be among the many influential companies to showcase its product line during the conference’s tabletop exhibition held on Tuesday, June 3rd. Stop by our exhibit to talk more in-depth about corrosion inhibition and your coating needs.
