Get inspired by water-based innovations

Why switch to water-based coatings when solvent-borne coatings have always been the best? The simple answer: The market is changing. But that means that aqueous coatings need to be ready to compete with solvent-borne ones. That’s why we are in a constant process of refining our water-based additives. Reap the benefits of their work.
Find out what our additive experts came up with and get inspired by water-based innovations like:

  • Labeling-free dispersing additives for binder-free grinds
  • Next generation silicone defoamer
  • Balanced challenges: defoaming high-build water-based systems
