Protecting your walls - novel solutions for interior & exterior wall paints

Wall paints are a very important application within Architectural Coatings - and renewing them is quite laborious. Optimizing the resistance to damage and wear leads to more economical and sustainable paint formulations, as it makes renovation of e.g. façades with the costly installation of scaffolding redundant. One particular headache for freshly painted façades can be the formation of so called snail trails causing an uneven appearance when there is high humidity or rain. New specialty fillers help to prevent these problems and allow to formulate very long lasting beautiful films when formulated e.g. with optimized hydrophobing agents. For interior coatings, innovative fillers also play a major role for optimization of mechanical resistance e.g. burnish phenomena - in addition, the use of suitable surface active agents facilitates the optimization of scuff and chemical resistance. Studies of film formation help to understand and optimize both interior and exterior formulations.
