Waterborne coatings ensure a drastic reduction in solvent emissions. Through the reduction in water absorption and protection from the sun’s radiation, OECE waterborne coatings can also provide several advantages in outdoor resistance. To offer good resistance, OECE products have been formulated with an optimal dose of UV absorbers and the addition of free radical captors: the former reduce wood yellowing and lignin destruction, while the latter considerably increase the film’s durability outdoors, reducing any chalking and loss of brightness, while increasing the effectiveness of the UV absorbers. OECE waterborne coatings provide good elasticity, high resistance to blocking, good vertical hold and excellent flow.
Synthetic products for exterior use are normally made with long-oil alkyd resins. Featuring excellent application conditions, frost resistance, initial gloss, non-blocking, chemical resistance, reduced grain raising, they are suitable for application on all wood types, with excellent value for money.
