UV Curable Water-Based Coatings: A Future Trend in Coatings Industry

Published By: IndustryARC Published On : 27-Jul-2017

The utilization of water-based architectural/decorative coatings is expanding because of legislation on the emission of solvents volatile organic compound (VOC) from paints and coatings. The point is to restrain the VOC substance of the coatings and resulting outflow into the climate. Water-based coatings are one class of coatings that ordinarily have VOC levels below any regulatory limits and can be utilized to decrease emissions contrasted with solvent-based coatings. As water is nontoxic and inexpensive, water based coatings are usually less expensive and safer than solvent-based coatings. However, these coatings are less tolerant of application environment owing to their composition waterborne coatings are more sensitive to temperature and humidity. Moreover, curable time for these coatings is high as compared to solvent-based coatings.

Ultra Violet (UV) cure Coatings are 100% solids by volume (SBV) and contain basically no VOCs, making them a standout amongst the most environmentally friendly coating solutions. The products can be defined from a variety of resins (acrylates, epoxy, polyester, and polyurethane) to give certain coating properties such as scraped spot resistance, hardness, chemical resistance, and adaptability. 

Water-based and UV-curable coatings might evoke their own respective lists of pros and cons, waterborne UV coatings seem to deliver the best of both worlds. They combine the eco-friendly properties of water-based formulas with the fast curing times offered by UV systems. In general finishing process takes three days of time but by using water-based UV coatings will take three hours of time for finishing. Water-based coatings with UV curing systems provide rapid curing times without or less VOC content.

Water-based decorative coatings hold more than 70% of market share in global decorative coatings industry. This technology will be the revolutionary in terms of manufacturing cycle. Moreover, wood and flooring decorative coatings continues to rise in near future.
