An acrylic binder designed for use with low-VOC paints

By Chemical Engineering |

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. According to the company, coatings formulated with Rhoplex 800h binder, when compared to those formulated with competitive binders, show improved tack resistance and demonstrate excellent scrape and print resistance — important qualities for trim surfaces, windows and door frames. — Dow Coating Materials, Midland, Mich.
