CH-Polymers is focusing on developing sustainable solutions to all industries we serve. Now the focus is the paint industry and how to improve sustainability of various coatings.
The 23rd SLF Congress will be held in Drammen, Norway on September 21-22, 2022.
A technical presentation will be given by our very own Gun Lundsten.
The topic is
“Bio-based, Bio-degradable or Sustainable Binders?”
Or all of the three? As a waterborne polymer dispersion producer for both paper and packaging, paint and coating as for non-woven applications we are trying to find solutions for all these three needs. But bio-based doesn’t necessarily mean that the solution is bio-degradable – or even sustainable! And a sustainable solution doesn’t necessarily need to be bio-based. In this technical paper we will philosophize around these definitions. We will also report on our findings of the differences in sustainability values and technical performance of waterborne binders when using bio-mass compared to bio-based monomers. Furthermore, we will present our concept of partly bio-based binders developed for paints.
