Acrylic Emulsion based on Self Crosslinking technologies
raising water borne performance …
Aqueous acrylic polymer emulsions Styacryl Xseries are designed for replacing solvent borne
systems. Owing to regulations limiting volatile solvent (VOC),new technologies are used to significantly
improve the performance of Aqueous emulsion properties. A major contributor to these performance
enhancements has been Next generation acrylic polymers Styacryl Xseries produced on the…..

The new technology leads to advancements in film mechanical properties; chemicals, water, and
abrasion resistance; durability; adhesive properties; and solvent resistance. This results have further
driven the growth of waterborne acrylic technologies.
The Styacryl Xseriesemulsions provides a number of benefits for consumers. From reducing safety
concerns to improving performance properties, the benefits of these intermediates are numerous.
•After film coalescence, crosslinking becomes rapid at ambient temperatures, thanks to water
evaporation in the drying process and a simultaneous reduction in pH arising from the loss of ammonia.
•Because crosslinking is post-coalescence, the resulting three-dimensional polymer network exhibits
enhanced mechanical strength and durability as well as maximum film cohesive properties.
•Coatings produced with Styacryl Xseries are initially non-reactive and afford with good long-term
stability during shipping and storage in retail containers (i.e., “in-can” stability).
•Use of Styacryl X series enhances abrasion, scrub, stain, and blocking resistance; moisture and
solvent resistance; and coatings adhesion.
•Low-VOC levels, < 100g/l typically, offering a better working environment
