Eco-friendly coatings contain less volatile organic compounds

09 June 2008

Vicote Coatings, are based on Victrex PEEK polymer, a linear, aromatic, semi-crystalline material, and the majority of Vicote dispersion grades have been formulated to contain some of the industry’s lowest levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These aqueous based coatings have less impact on the environment than competitive coatings systems which are typically formulated with high levels of solvents. The dispersions release around 4 to 5 grams of VOCs per square meter coated based on a dry film thickness (DFT) of 50 microns, which is considerably less than competitive coating systems with some releasing as much as 254 grams for the same area and DFT.
