BASF

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. Learn more by visiting www.basf.us/industrialcoatings


Formulation of waterborne coatings designed to prevent corrosion presents many challenges to the coatings formulator. Waterborne resins used in anti-corrosion coatings have improved dramatically in recent years and new developments continue to improve coating performance at reduced VOC levels. The corrosion protection provided by these coatings is highly dependent on proper selection of the resin, solvents, additives, and pigments.

The discussion will focus on the formulation technique, application, and testing of light duty waterborne primers and DTM coatings. This will include a recent evaluation of additives for improving block resistance and their effect on the salt spray resistance of a DTM formulation. In addition, primer and DTM corrosion performance was compared using salt spray (ASTM B117) and Prohesion (ASTM G85 A5).Participants will be eligible to receive credit from SSPC.

Lori Boggs, Technical Team Leader – Transportation and Industrial Coatings
BASF

Lori Boggs is the Technical Team Leader for the tech service applications group and the Technical Specialist for Waterborne Protective Resins in the Dispersions and Resins business of BASF Corporation. Prior to this she spent 23 years in the Automotive OEM Coatings group of BASF formulating both waterborne and solventborne basecoats and as an application specialist. Much of her career was spent observing the spray application of automotive topcoats to determine what rheological measurements provide clues to optimizing the flow and appearance characteristics of coatings. Lori has a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan where she studied the mechanism of rheology control of coatings containing microgels.
