Water-based resins are another name for waterborne resins. In place of a solvent or a solventless carrier, these resins or polymeric resins use water. Coatings, adhesives, sealants, elastomers, and composite materials are all made with resins.
The term “waterborne resin” often refers to any resin that uses water as its primary transporting solvent. The resin may be disseminated in water, water reducible, or water soluble.
Most coatings consist of these four elements. The resin or binder is the main component of the resin, solvent, pigment, and additive systems.
Since resins or binders are the most crucial component of a coating, more of them are being developed and designed waterborne, and there is a constantly increasing use by coating formulators.
This trend is being driven by ongoing environmental legislation in many countries as well as geopolitics, such as oil production. Adhesives follow the same rules.
There has always been a desire to manufacture paints, inks, adhesives, textile sizes, etc. using water as the transporting solvent because it is typically a cheap (but not free) commodity in abundant supply with minimal toxicity issues.
As a result, waterborne resins made specifically for these systems had to be produced. Legislative pressure in recent years has meant that aqueous systems and consequently waterborne resins are rising to the forefront more and more.
The global Automotive waterborne silicone resin market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
An environmentally friendly silicone resin that was created especially for aqueous coatings has been released by Evonik’s Coating Additives business division. Previous solventborne resins, whose manufacture is partially or entirely forbidden in China, are immediately replaced by this product.
water-based silicone resin coatings. A heat-resistant silicone resin that satisfies all criteria for a sustainable formulation is the new SILIKOFTAL HTW 3. It has a much lower VOC content from production to application and is free of organic solvents. As an exterior coating, SILIKOFTAL HTW 3 is appropriate for food contact.
The silicone resin is not GHS-classified as hazardous since essential elements were left out. This product is unique on the market because of its unique combination of qualities, including great performance, simple handling, and approval for food contact.
Customers have more flexibility when formulating their coatings since SILIKOFTAL HTW 3 can be used anywhere that stoving coatings are used and can be blended with a variety of colours. For instance, toasters and other home appliances are included (electrical appliances).
200 °C is the operating temperature resistance. For storage and transportation, the high flashpoint of above 90°C has commensurate advantages. “In SILIKOFTAL HTW 3, they provide a solution that complies with increasingly strict rules,” explains the market segment manager for industrial coatings.
