Wednesday, April 1st, 2020

Session 7
11:00 – 11:30 AM

Demand for high performing water-based coatings continues to be the trend throughout the many coatings market segments.  Wood flooring, cabinetry, and furniture coatings segments are a major component of this movement. To support this need, development of innovative solutions is required to provide improved coatings performance.  End-users are seeking increased durability partnered with the lower environmental impact that comes with water-based technology.   Enhanced scratch resistance will improve the long-lasting aesthetics and protection that wood coatings provide.  A novel, easy to use approach to improve scratch resistance in water-based wood coatings has been demonstrated in multiple resin technologies.  Performance testing of improved scratch resistance while maintaining good film properties will be presented in a water-based UV curable system which exceeds performance of current market offerings.
