Do you want to improve the hiding performance of your paint? Increase its film-barrier properties?
In that case, Brenntag is pleased to showcase, EVOQUE™, a Dow Pre-Composite Polymer Technology that adds value across a broad spectrum of architectural paint products, from premium to price-competitive lines.
Used alone or in conjunction with Dow ROPAQUE™ Opaque Polymers, EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymer opens doors to succeeding in your market space.
Paints made with EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymer offer marketable consumer benefits including:
- Improved hiding performance
- Improved tint and colour retention
- Greater durability
- Enhanced efflorescence resistance
- Better stain resistance and stain removal
How it Works
EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymer Technology is designed to interact with the surface of titanium dioxide (TiO2), creating polymer-pigment composites that contribute to improved TiO2 distribution and light-scattering efficiency. The technology helps to optimize the use of TiO2 and maintain the same wet- and dry-hiding and tint strength.
EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymers create polymer-pigment composites that enhance hiding efficiency and optimize the use of TiO2 while maintaining equal wet- and dry-hiding and tint strength. This revolutionary technology also offers formulation-specific performance improvements that can help your products stand out on the store shelf.
EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymer Technology offers formulation-specific improvements in interior barrier properties, including improved stain resistance and easier stain removal.
EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymer strongly interacts with the surface of TiO2, creating a polymer-pigment composite that contributes to tighter film formation. That, in turn, offers notable improvements in stain resistance and removal across sheens, from flat to gloss.
EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymer Technology offers formulation-specific improvements in exterior barrier properties, including:
- Gloss and Colour retention
- Tannin stain blocking
- Efflorescence resistance.
Acrylic paint made with EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymer Precursor demonstrates improved dirt-pick up resistance after six years of exposure, north vertical, at the Dow Exposure Station in Spring House, PA.
A Life Cycle Assessment demonstrates that waterborne house paints reformulated with EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymer and/or ROPAQUE™ Opaque Polymer have smaller impact on the environment in 10 out of 10 measured categories, including air and water quality, as well as greenhouse-gas emissions.
