Textile Coatings

Application Description

Emulsion polymers are used for textile coatings to provide aesthetics and improve water, oil and solvent resistance. Boat covers, convertible tops, and outdoor awnings are good examples, illustrating the need for both hydrophobicity and flexibility, even at low temperatures. Another characteristic often desired in coatings for textiles destined for use outdoors is UV resistance. Coating formulations incorporating acrylic polymers provide good water resistance and do not age prematurely in intense sunlight.
