Acrylic-melamine latex with controlled crosslinking capability
May 20-25, 2018
Crosslinkable polymers are highly demanded in applications where improved thermal, mechanical, and chemical strengths are required. Among crosslinkable polymers, those with film forming capability are of high technological interest, as in coatings and adhesives. In a scenario of increasing concern for sustainability and stricter environmental legislation, coatings industry has switched to water based products, like acrylic latexes. Crosslinkable latexes aim to improve the physical properties of coalesced latex films, over the levels attainable with thermoplastic latexes, which lack hardness, toughness and solvent resistance.
