avanse ST-410 emulsion
Rohm and Haas has launched an environmentally-advanced binder, Avanse ST-410 emulsion, to the North American coatings market. This new high-performance, 100% acrylic, waterborne polymer can be used for semi-transparent deck and siding stains. Semi-transparent stains based on Avanse ST-410 emulsion do not require coalescent or heavy metal driers, are easy to apply and enhance the appearance of new and weathered wood with a long-lasting finish, according to the company. The combination of morphology and unique particle stabilization maximizes the flow and lapping characteristics during application, while building early resistance properties upon drying.
