Bio-Based Coating Additives: A Sustainable Approach to Modern Coating Technology.
However, various products used for wood coatings around the home have volatile organic solvents and other toxic chemicals that have been linked to poor indoor air quality and possible health impacts. There are many vital reasons that influence the emission rate such as VOC content of coatings as applied, VOC density, area of wood coated, solids content of coatings as applied, thickness of the applied coating and number of coats applied. Due to the evaporation of organic solvents contained in coating, the VOC compounds are emitted. The emission of VOCs can be influential in producing smog formation and other detrimental effects and is regulated for by the EU and other individual national authorities.
Presently, many manufacturers of wood coatings do offer coating solutions which are healthy and environmentally sound. They are low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and formulated without aromatic solvents, heavy metals, or cancer causing chemicals. Recently, an innovative biopolymer based additive for matting is introduced. The product is 100% based on renewable resources and is totally biodegradable. The major benefits of this coating is that they provide excellent matting effect, especially in UV systems, in association with high transparency and a smooth feel without influence on slip. Additionally, the additive improves scratch-, abrasion and blocking resistance. It can be used in solvent-free, solvent- and waterborne systems without detrimental influence on viscosity.
