Waterborne Coatings: Technology, Formulation and Applications

ID : 4000   
« back to classes page
This course is specifically designed to provide detailed understanding of the technology of water-borne resins and water-borne coatings. Putting in perspective with other coating technologies, the course focuses on the chemistry, technology and applications of water-borne resins and how they are used for coatings. Challenges of using water in coatings and how these challenges have been overcome will be discussed in detail.  Water-borne coatings based on Acrylics, urethanes, epoxies, alkyds will be discussed along with their unique challenges and strengths. Testing and evaluation of properties specific to water-borne coatings will also be discussed.
Who should attend?

The technical information provided through course will be useful for chemists and technicians working in industries engaged in coating manufacturing, raw material suppliers, R&D, technical services, sales and marketing. It is specifically recommended for formulators, raw material suppliers, end users and quality control personnel. 

What you will learn?
  • Gain overall understanding of water-based resins and coating chemistries ad formulations
  • Obtain good understanding of water-based resins – Acrylic emulsion, Polyurethane dispersions, Alkyds / epoxy emulsions
  • Unique characteristics that makes water-borne coatings different from other coating types
  • Deep understanding of unique aspects specific to water-based coatings – rheology, film formation, defects and role of additives.
  • Understanding of what it takes to transition from solvent-based to water-based coatings.
  • How water-based coating formulations, testing and applications differ from other coating types.
