DSM Coating Resins
Making a splash in waterborne resins
Wonderful waterborne resins
Waterborne resin technology has gained real momentum in the coatings industry, and we’re proud to have been there from the start. While waterborne coatings contain around eight times fewer VOCs than traditional solventborne equivalents, the greatest scientific challenge – beyond making them even more sustainable – is how to achieve this without compromising performance or cost efficiency.
At DSM, we’re making real progress here – in waterborne alkyds, urethanes, acrylics and urethane-acrylic hybrids. For example, in Asia, where we chair the Waterborne China Platform (WBCP), we’ve helped the entire industrial container market to make the transition from solventborne to waterborne coatings. In years to come, we expect that steady trickle of converts to become a stream.
