Biobased polymers for the paint & coatings industry

ALBERDINGK BOLEY has been supplying the industry with biobased products for 250 years. In the early 1990’s we invented polyurethane dispersions based on castor oil and later PUD’s based on linseed oil. Since a couple of years we are also developing biobased acrylic dispersions for various applications. At the Paint & Coatings Show in Milano, Markus Dimmers, Head of Technical Marketing, informed about the state of the art in biobased acrylics and polyurethanes for different kind of applications such as decorative paints, wood and metal coatings. He also addressed the limitations caused by raw materials, regulations and labels as well as the potential CO2 reduction that can be achieved by optimising the formulation.
