Direct to metal (DTM) coatings provide advantages over multilayer systems by reducing the number of application steps, lowering raw material costs and the need for active pigments. Waterborne resins used in anticorrosion coatings have improved dramatically in recent years and new development is continuing to improve resin performance at reduced VOC. Because the corrosion protection provided by these coatings is highly dependent on both the resin and the formulation of the coating, choosing the appropriate solvents, additives and pigments is necessary to optimize the performance of the coating. Often attempting to drop-in or directly replace resins in waterborne formulations does not result in optimum performance. Therefore, the formulation of these waterborne DTM coatings presents many challenges to the coatings formulator.

Lori Boggs, Technical Team Leader
Lori Boggs has over 25 years of experience at BASF in automotive and industrial coatings and has spent much of her career observing the spray application of automotive topcoats to determine what rheological measurements can be related to the final color and appearance of the film. Lori has a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan where she studied the mechanism of rheology control of coatings containing microgels.
As the world’s leading chemical company, BASF helps formulators of architectural, industrial and transportation coatings deliver sustainable, innovative solutions that meet or exceed performance requirements.
We provide virtually every ingredient that a coatings manufacturer needs. Among our priorities is a focus on sustainable solutions – e.g. low VOC products, APEO-free and formaldehyde-free materials, low energy curing, replacement of heavy metal pigments and latex with minimal environmental impact. BASF provides a depth and breadth of technologies and cross-functional teams with expertise in chemistry, applications and formulations. We offer local support capabilities from sites in Charlotte, NC and Southfield, MI.
