Dr. Azhar Awan from Cytec Industries Inc. presented a paper “Experimental Eco-friendly Sustainable Surfactants for Preparing Acrylic and Vinyl Acrylic Latexes for Architectural Coatings at 40th Annual Waterborne, High-Solids, and Powder Coatings Symposium” in New Orleans, Louisiana from February 4-8, 2013.
Awan’s presentation reviewed Cytec’s approach for addressing the unmet market need for surfactants based on naturally derived and renewable raw materials that are more sustainable and safe. These experimental surfactants were analyzed for CMC, VOC, solids, surface tension, foam, F/T stability and color and screened for their functionality as primary emulsifiers in acrylics and vinyl acrylics emulsion polymer seed synthesis.
