ABSTRACT
There are many factors influencing the choice of binder in architectural coatings: performance properties, governmental regulations concerning environmental impact, and consumer preference for "green" and low odor. Over the past decade, vinyl acetate ethylene copolymers (VAE) have gained market share in North America and Europe vs. vinyl acrylics and styrene acrylics as binders in architectural paints and coatings. VAE emulsions are especially well utilized in low emission (low VOC) paints where they also demonstrate very good performance in all major application properties. This article describes recent developments in VAE technology for interior and exterior paints and details how to utilize it with other emulsions for the development of low-VOC, low-odor, and environmentally friendly coatings for use in various architectural applications.
