Which polymers are used for interior wall paints?

A typical wall paint is made of 3 main ingredients:

  • A binder; Dispersion polymer, waterbased (Acryclic, Styrene Acrylic, Vinyl Acetate Ethylene)
  • A pigment, mostly TiO2 (titanium dioxide)
  • Additives; optimizing application and drying performance

The binders used are mainly:

  • Pure acrylics; known of their all round performance
  • Styrene acrylics; know for it’s economic applications
  • Vinyl-Acetate-Ethylene; for increased performance on VOC & CO2 reduction, colour stability, hydrophobic & hydrophylic balance.
Different polymers for formulating wall paints.

Intercol is an experienced VAE formulator. Intercol has developed some special grades Interior wall paints. Besides VAE copolymers, VAE can also be Terpolymerized with:

  • Acrylics; to increase adhesion, flexibility and wet scrub resistance
  • Chloride; to increase hardness, wet scrub resistance and flame retardancy

With the help of VAE polymers, unique wall paints can be developed, like:

  • Reduced CO2 wall paints, with biobased VAE and reduced or replaced TiO2. (While VAE increases typically the hiding power in relation to Acrylics and SA.
  • Reduced VOC paints. For increased quality of air
  • Preservative free paints.
  • Unique plasters
  • Biobased building material support (like cellulosics)
  • Increase color stability applications, going beyond wall paints
