Influence of hydrophobically modified HEC on the viscosity of latex paints

Cellulose ethers are an inseparable element of dispersion paints, especially with medium-high and high PVC where the proportion of polymer dispersion is not too high. They are one of the most commonly used wall and ceiling dispersion paint thickeners on the EMEA and Asia-Pacific markets. One of the basic and very common cellulose thickeners isContinue reading “Influence of hydrophobically modified HEC on the viscosity of latex paints”

The flash point of coalescing agents for water-borne paints

Flash point is a parameter that is usually associated first with solvents and solvent-based paints. Flammability pictograms are usually found on such products. It should also not be forgotten that the coalescents present in many water-borne paints are also organic compounds showing vapor pressure, which under appropriate conditions show a flash point. These tests areContinue reading “The flash point of coalescing agents for water-borne paints”

The range of laboratory tests used to evaluate stain resistant latex paints

Wall paints in terms of stain resistance are experiencing their extraordinary growth. However, not all companies have properly prepared formulations yet, because the preparation of paints that will be resistant to everyday stains and enable their easy removal is extremely difficult and requires extensive knowledge in the field of raw materials and tests to verifyContinue reading “The range of laboratory tests used to evaluate stain resistant latex paints”
