Classical and new application fields for PU modified alkyd emulsions

In the last decade polyurethane modified alkyd emulsions made an important contribution for the change from solvent based alkyd systems to water based systems with comparable or even better performance. In this area Worlée Sol E 150 W is mainly used as sole binder for industrial and decorative primers and top coats. Well-balanced property profiles can be reached also with hybrid systems.

Furthermore there is a trend to use this internally emulsified alkyd emulsion also as an additive binder for acrylic dispersions to achieve effects like improved and safer application performance and avoidance of film forming agents.

The latest development is that our technology can also lead to a real thixotropic behavior in water based systems.
