Leveling test procedure ASTM D4062. What it is and how to use it?

Water-soluble paints based on winyl-acrylic, styrene-acrylic or pure acrylic emulsions contain thickeners in their formulations ensuring appropriate rheological properties at low, medium and high shear rates. Setting the ideal viscosity to ensure no sagging, Stormer-viscosity and ICI-viscosity requires a balancing of different rheological additives and dosages. Often, with selected rheological properties allowing for good application,Continue reading “Leveling test procedure ASTM D4062. What it is and how to use it?”

Formulating of latex paints using the relationship between PVC and CPVC

The formulation of latex paints, as well as paints in general, requires extensive knowledge of the basics of the raw material composition of paints, the raw material base and the amounts of use of individual raw materials. While the number of recommended dosages can be determined at the beginning from the doses oscillating in theContinue reading “Formulating of latex paints using the relationship between PVC and CPVC”

Effectiveness of thickeners in preventing sagging

Latex paint formulations for architectural applications are intended for the manufacture of DIY paints and for applications by professional painters who apply them with a brush, paint rollers and various spraying techniques. During their application, most substrates are placed on vertical surfaces, such as walls, furniture fronts or fences. Application to such surfaces carries theContinue reading “Effectiveness of thickeners in preventing sagging”
