Pulp, Paper & Printing Processes VINNAPAS® for Architectural Paints, Adhesives and Engineered Fabrics

Webinar | Distributors


This webinar provides an overview of the possibilities of polymeric binders for architectural paints, adhesives and engineered fabrics.


Basic knowledge of chemistry


Polymer Binders VINNAPAS®

  • Polymer Chemistry, manufacturing process and mode of action of Dispersions
  • Characteristics, test methods and applications of
    Architectural Paints (e.g. interior and exterior paints; intumescent coatings)
    Adhesives (e.g. paper packaging, wood, floor coverings)
    Engineering fabrics (non-wovens, textile binders)

Seminar objectives

Applications in the construction and coatings industries entail the use of all kinds of raw materials. This webinar will teach participants what they need to know to make ideal use of the potential opportunities of polymeric binders. Starting with the mode of action, the seminar will also cover current uses and test methods for various formulations and applications.
