Film Formation of Latex Binders: What You Need To Know
Film formation is highly modifiable so that the final product is affected greatly by the process and chemistry you employ. Let’s take a deep dive into film formation of latex binders to understand the three essential stages: Drying, Deformation and Coalescence.
Barrier coatings resist penetration by oil and grease, help maintain package integrity, and protect the consumer from unwanted stains. Learn more about acrylic polymers and styrene-butadiene emulsion polymers used in barrier coating formulations.
Tykote 1019 is recommended for use in paper and paperboard coatings where a high degree of water and water vapor resistance is needed. It may also be formulated into barrier laminating adhesives for paper-to-paper, paper-to-film, and foil-to-paper.
