2016 AMERICAN COATINGS SHOW - WACKER Showcases VINNAPAS® Performance-enhancing VAE-based Binders for Interior Coatings, Caulks, Sealants and Mastics

Adrian, MI, Apr 07, 2016

At the 2016 American Coatings Show in Indianapolis, April 12-14, Booth #1946, WACKER is presenting its vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) - based binders for architectural coatings. VINNAPAS® EF8300 is a versatile binder for high performance interior coatings while VINNAPAS® EF 8001 is particularly well suited for interior low-odor and low VOC paints. VINNAPAS® EF575 is a VAE-based binder for caulks, sealants and mastics with excellent adhesion properties on a wide variety of substrates while providing an excellent cost/performance balance.

VINNAPAS® EF8300 combines high performance, such as good block and scrub resistance and wet adhesion with low environmental impact. It is GS-11 compliant and produced without the use of APEOs. It is ideal for flat through gloss finishes. VINNAPAS® EF8001 is used to formulate low-odor and low-VOC flat to mid-sheen paints. Odor profile is noticeably sub-dued; especially compared to standard vinyl acrylic technology. Produced without the use of APEOs and features low for-maldehyde. It is GS-11 compliant.

VINNAPAS® EF8300 – Interior Coatings Binder for Flat through Gloss Finishes
VINNAPAS® EF8300 is WACKER’s answer to binders for high performance coatings. Available in the Americas Region as a binder for architectural coatings, the VAE binder VINNAPAS® EF8300 combines high performance, such as good block resistance, wet adhesion and scrub resistance with low environmental impact and is ideal for flat through gloss finishes. It has a performance comparable to pure acrylics and exceeds that of vinyl acrylics and blend systems. It thus provides an acrylate-free option to replace traditional binders in high-end coatings, allowing the paint formulator to meet today’s VOC regulations.

VINNAPAS® EF8300 meets foreseeable environmental regulations because it is produced without the use of APEOs and allows the formulation of architectural coatings that are low VOC (< 5 g/l), very low residual monomer (< 200 ppm) and low formaldehyde without the addition of coalescing solvents. It is therefore GS-11 compliant and meets any foreseeable environmental regulations, such as CARB, OTC, LATCO, and SCAQMD.

VINNAPAS® EF8001 – Interior Coatings Binder for Flat and Mid-Sheen Paints
VINNAPAS® EF8001 is a versatile interior-coatings binder for low-odor and low-VOC paints. A premier binder for flat and mid-sheen paints, VINNAPAS® EF8001 combines superior low-odor and low-VOC capability with excellent performance and cost-in-use-benefits. It enables formulations of low-odor and low-VOC paints (< 5 g/l), since it has very low residual-monomer content (< 200 ppm) and does not need organic solvents or coalescing agents. Its odor profile is noticeably subdued; especially compared to standard vinyl acrylic technology. Furthermore, it is produced without the use of APEOs and features low formaldehyde. It is GS-11 compliant and meets applicable environmental regulations, including proposed reductions in VOC’s. VINNAPAS® EF8001 offers the paint formulator best-in-class performance in many key areas, such as scrub resistance and touch-up performance. Outperforming competing technologies such as traditional and low-VOC vinyl acrylics, VINNAPAS® EF8001 provides good alkaline hydrolysis resistance and affords the formulator greater formulation flexibility.

VINNAPAS® PVAC Solid Resins – VOC Compliant Mastics and Tackifier in Hot Melt Adhesives
VINNAPAS® UW PVAc solid resins are extremely well-suited for VOC compliant formulations when used in exterior or interior mastics such as landscape and sub-floor adhesives. An excellent binder for solvent-based multi-purpose glues, VINNAPAS® UW PVAC materials can be formulated with HAPs compliant solvents.
VINNAPAS® solid resins are indispensable when formulated as a tackifier in hot melt adhesives. Tackifiers based on VINNAPAS® PVAc and in particular, VINNAPAS® B provide many exceptional application ad-vantages such as minimizing adhesive migration, are color and odor free and are FDA approved. In addition, they allow increased formulation versatility, improved adhesion, and offer faster setting speeds.

VINNAPAS® EF575 is a versatile binder used in a variety of applications including caulks, sealants and mastics. Manufactured without the use of APEOs, defoamers or formaldehyde donors, it can be formulated with typical pigments, fillers, thickeners and other binder chemistries.

VINNAPAS® EF575 – Versatile VAE Binder with Excellent Adhesion to a Wide Variety of Substrates
VINNAPAS® EF575 is an aqueous surfactant stabilized vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer dispersion with a glass transition temperature (Tg) of 0 °C developed as a versatile binder used in a variety of applications including caulks, sealants and mastics. It demonstrates excellent flexibility and good adhesion to metals such as aluminum, galvanized and stainless steel. Manufactured without the use of APEOs, defoamers or formaldehyde donors, it can be formulated with typical pigments, fillers, thickeners and other binder chemistries. VINNAPAS® EF575 can be formulated to pass key industry standards including ASTM C 834 and ASTM C 920.
