Nouryon launches ingredient to optimize multicolor paint formulations

6 Dec 2018 - News

Nouryon (formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals) has launched an innovative multifunctional ingredient, Bermocoll EBM 3000, which optimizes the performance of water-based multicolor paints used on building facades to mimic the appearance of stone or marble.

Multicolor paints consist of colored droplets dispersed in latex, which may include texturing materials such as sand. Bermocoll EBM 3000 is a versatile ingredient that is compatible with most multicolor paint formulations, preventing droplet agglomeration and color migration and providing adjustable gel strength and excellent color development properties.

The product was launched at the China Coat Show, held this week in Guangzhou. China is a key market for multicolor paint, where it is widely used in in high-rise buildings.

“Multicolored paint offers many advantages, including ease of installation, consistency of color and flexibility, but most important is its economic and environmental value versus real stone or marble,” says Annika Karlsson, RD&I and Sustainability Director for Nouryon’s Bermocoll business. “Thanks to the multifunctional chemistry of Bermocoll EBM 3000, we’re able to enhance the development and stability of multicolor paint formulations.”

Geert Hofman, General Manager Performance Additives at Nouryon, added: “Bermocoll EBM 3000 is a high-performance ingredient that delivers key technical and formulation benefits for the multicolour paint market. In addition, it is manufactured by a unique solvent-free process, offering the lowest carbon footprint. It underlines our focus on working with customers to deliver innovative products that contribute to sustainable growth. “
