The article focuses on the evaluation with three common base emulsions and formulations to show the use of coalescents or plasticizers. It states that a new filming was examined againts low-volatile organic compounds (VOC) plasticizers or coalescents such as the second-generation dibenzoate blend. It mentions that the evaluation reveals that the dibenzoate blend could serve as a plasticizer and low-VOC coalescent for coating applications.
