Water based systems: nanotechnologies and high-tech hybridization strategies

Water based systems are safe and environmentally friendly. Their non-toxic and non-flammable nature reduces harmful emissions and increases worker safety.
Responsibility in human and environmental care lead to the development of waterborne polymer, as an excellent replacement of traditional solvent based paints. Waterborne polymers exhibit a wide range of advantages, such as flexibility, low temperature resistance, toughness, UV resistance and outstanding abrasion resistance. But the quality of the paint is strongly influenced by its water barrier properties.
