Rhoplex 800h acrylic binder was created to allow for early hardness development in low-VOC (volatile organic compound) paints. The controlled polymer-morphology technology employs hard, soft and functional monomers in a singleScreenshot 2015-12-22 09.00.01 waterborne acrylic binder to help improve hardness and block resistance in high-gloss and deep-tone architectural paints.
