Few binder chemistries offer the convenience and simplicity of one-component acrylics for industrial coatings. They are ready to spray with less mixing, no induction time and no pot life. In many cases, applicators can set up faster, start spraying more quickly and save left-over material for later use. Waterborne acrylics offer the added advantages of low odor, low VOC, no flammability and solvent-free clean-up. Today, significant improvements in the performance of one-component acrylic coatings are pushing their utility well beyond light-duty applications. This webinar will describe the basic chemistry and film formation process of one-component acrylics, technologies that are raising performance properties, applications in light-to-medium duty maintenance and protection of concrete and steel, applications in commercial architecture (including green building trends), and new uses such as liquid applied sound damping.
