Ringier honors BYK with two innovation awards

in RELEASE EXPOSITOR

by Fabio Humberg

BYK is delighted to have received two accolades from China: Ringier Trade Media, the publisher of “Coatings and Inks China”, has recognized BYK in the categories “2017 Ringier Technology Innovation Awards - Coatings Industry” and “Innovators of the Year”. The public and jury, comprising seven experts from the Chinese coatings industry, was impressed by a new additive from BYK: BYK-3565, which positively affects the wetting and leveling of the subsequent coating layer in multilayer coatings, was voted the winner in the category “2017 Ringier Technology Innovation Awards - Coatings Industry” by a large majority.
The jury was equally impressed by the work of the international and interdisciplinary research teams, with the result that the researchers could look forward to a further award, that of “Innovators of the Year”.
“We are thrilled with this double distinction because it confirms that we are on the right path of successfully meeting the various demands and challenges of the coatings industry with state-of-the-art additive technology and new concepts,” Dr. Horst Sulzbach, BYK’s CTO, states.
BYK-3565 is the logical development of BYK-3560, a hydrophilic additive that is also based on macromer technology. The challenge consisted not only in increasing the surface energy unilaterally but also in visibly improving the coating’s anti-crater properties. “After numerous test runs, we were able to perfectly balance the hydrophilic and hydrophobic components of the additive, which was the key to success,” Dr. Guillaume Jaunky, Head of the Surface Technology Group at BYK, affirms.

Archroma launches Mowilith® POWDER 2702 re-dispersible polymer powder for…

in RELEASE EXPOSITOR

by Fabio Humberg

• Mortars offer enhanced performance over 2K and other polymer alternatives

• Fast and practical use: Needs only water; easier application and reliable handling

• Economical, lower-weight packaging for reduced environmental impact

Archroma, a global leader in color and specialty chemicals, announces the launch of Mowilith® POWDER 2702 re-dispersible polymer powder (RDP), a ground-breaking innovation to support the introduction of highly-practical and sustainable 1K (one-component) premium-performance waterproofing mortars for building and construction applications.

New Mowilith® POWDER 2702 cost-effectively improves the key properties of cement-based formulations, such as adhesion and hydrophobicity (water repellence). It achieves enhanced waterproofing performance in comparison to both traditional 2K (two-component) systems and to other polymers available for waterproofing mortars. Compared to existing polymers, it also delivers outstanding semi-flexibility which results in less mortar cracking and therefore better overall sealing performance for 1K systems.

A 1K dry-mix mortar with Mowilith® POWDER 2702 offers the market a combination of performance, handling and sustainability-related benefits that set it apart from standard 2K systems based on dry mortar and a liquid dispersion.

The 1K pre-packed dry-mix is easy to prepare and to apply. It requires only water to be added to the dry component at the worksite to achieve a mortar with the desired consistency for easier user application. Importantly, thanks to the RDP, the mortar can be re-dispersed after contact with water for later use. As water is easy to dose, particularly with a pre-supplied dosage recipient, this also creates less potential for user error too.

The advanced 1K option has environmental and logistic-related benefits over a 2K system. From a packaging perspective, only one plastic packet of dry fillers is needed per box instead of a dry mix bag and a liquid bag. This lessens the amount of plastic and content weight is reduced by up to 30%. By enabling a smaller box size, less warehouse storage space is needed. In addition, a purely dry-mix package is easier and more save to transport than liquid contents.

Waterproofing mortar made with Mowilith® POWDER 2702 can be applied over concrete, ceramic and concrete blocks, cement and other cementitious bases in the following fields of application: Wet and wettable areas; buried structures such as tanks and pools; internal and external walls; and underground foundations and baseboards.

Mowilith® POWDER 2702 meets the requirements for being approved to potable water reservoirs. The new development qualifies for Archroma's low emission concept, being APEO-free, solvent-free, ammonia-free, low odor, low VOC and low in formaldehyde content.

Luciana Fonseca, Head of Product Management and Business Development, Coatings, Adhesives & Sealants Business, Archroma, comments: "1K waterproofing mortars offer environmental and simplified-handling advantages for the building and construction sector. Add to that the performance boosts made possible by our Mowilith® POWDER 2702 and you have an innovation to viably extend 1K systems to the market. A specific customer has already tested and proven the benefits, so much so that they are all set to introduce a new product based on this solution. It's a positive, sustainable step forward for the industry which we are pleased to support."

in RELEASE EXPOSITOR

by Fabio Humberg

• Genamin® Gluco 50: novel renewable-based additive without hazard labeling for indoor paints & lacquers


• 3-in-1: neutralizer, compatibilizer & stabilizer, able to outperform current market standards


• Ideal for ecolabel certified paints: sustainable & performance-boosting from a single VOC-free ingredient


Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, breaks new ground for the indoor paint and coatings segment with the launch of the industry’s first renewable-based, VOC/SVOC-free and hazard label-free neutralizing agent: Genamin Gluco 50.

The new sugar-based additive innovation supports formulators in meeting consumer demand for low odor, healthier and easy to apply indoor paints and lacquers. Its introduction is also significant for ecolabel certified paints, where a reduction in additives can help to keep a formulation within low VOC/SVOC limits.

Genamin Gluco 50 combines an outstanding sustainable profile with performance-boosting properties that set it apart from existing neutralizing options for waterborne coatings. In contrast to standard neutralizers, such as ammonia or caustic soda, Genamin Gluco 50 does more than adjust the pH-value of a formulation to around 8-10 to create a stable paint system with minor interactions between the paint. It also enhances the performance and quality profile of the waterborne coating.

Genamin Gluco 50 acts as a 3-in-1 additive, being neutralizer, compatibilizer and stabilizer in one additive. The product achieves additional functionalities and proven advantages for the formulation, such as improving storage stability and pigment compatibility, and reducing flash-rust formation. In certain aspects, its performance is proven to be superior to that of alternative multifunctional additives such as aminomethyl propanol (AMP), currently under scrutiny and substance evaluation by the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency). Genamin Gluco 50 offers the following extensive benefits.
• Improves paint lifetime and storage stability even in colder regions. Gloss lacquers containing Genamin Gluco 50 show no syneresis, sedimentation or changes to pH-value or viscosity after storage at 50°C for 28 days. The lacquer also remains stable after 5 freeze-thaw cycles.
• Increases tinting strength thanks to better pigment compatibility. Waterborne paints and pigment dispersions neutralized with Genamin Gluco 50 show higher tinting strength.
• Enhances metal protection due to reduced flash rust formation. It also helps to protect the coating film against discoloration caused by rusting.
• Low-odor, easy to use paints: Genamin Gluco 50 is VOC/SVOC free and has a pleasant smell. It also helps to make paints and coatings easy to apply.
• No negative influence on paint properties, such as gloss or on drying or hardness behavior.
Extensive laboratory testing confirms that Genamin Gluco 50 outperforms AMP in the areas of storage stability, flash rust, pigment compatibility and odor.

Alexander Snell, Head of Sales Industrial Applications EMEA, Clariant Business Unit Industrial & Consumer Specialties, comments: “Achieving multifunctionality from a single VOC-free additive overcomes a major challenge for paint formulators faced, in particular, with the low VOC/SVOC limits of the ecolabels such as the German Blue Angel. Genamin Gluco 50 is the ideal component for the paints of today and tomorrow. It helps paint formulators to replace ingredients that are under scrutiny, offering a package of high performance and eco-related benefits that satisfy paint manufacturers, professional painters and consumers.”

Genamin Gluco 50 has been awarded the EcoTain® label for its outstanding sustainable profile. EcoTain® is Clariant’s label for sustainability excellence products and solutions that significantly exceed sustainability market standards, have best-in-class performance and contribute overall to sustainability efforts of the company and its customers.
