Coatings R&D Notebook

Abstract

The views of Dr. Harvest L. Collier, University of Missouri-Rolla, on the the implementation of biocidal agents in waterborne coating applications are discussed. The application of biocidal additives in waterborne formulations presents the opportunity for these agents to undergo significant aqueous extraction. The method employed to provide controlled release of these species include encapsulating the additives in the permeable coating film, hosting the additive molecules within a macromolecules framework and bonding the additive molecule to another molecules. The use of silicon additives for UV-cure coatings and waxes for powder coatings is also discussed.
