Synopsis

In advanced waterborne coatings, a key aspect to achieving superior performance in a formulation is the paint formulator’s ability to understand all the synergistic effects between individual raw materials. Certain ingredients, such as alkanolamines, are more inclined to interact with others in a given formulation, which can provide formulators with the opportunity to optimize the formulation.

The unique chemical structures of the alkanolamine additives present in the ANGUS products portfolio can be used the illustrate the wide spectrum of chemical equilibrium or boosting effects these chemistries can provide in modern waterborne coatings formulations. The presence of both an amine and alcohol function allow for the respective ionic and hydrogen bonding, the compact molecular structure leads to fast diffusion in liquid media. Additionally, the combination of the high-purity and amine bearing quaternary carbon, which provides color stability, make these an excellent choice as dispersing agents. Beyond this well-documented feature, it has not widely understood that these alkanolamines can also be used as remediation for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) due to chemical scavenging reactions (i.e., with aldehydes), as well as boosting effect with isothiazolinone (i.e., Benzisothiazolinone) helping extend the shelf life of waterborne formulations.
