How significant are water-borne systems in the field of industrial coatings?
With regulation becoming more stringent in markets like China and India, the switch to environmentally friendly and sustainable driven technologies will continue and increase momentum. 40% percent of cleaning systems in the paint, coating, and ink industries are water-based.
Water-borne technology is significant indeed, and from our perspective, water-borne systems are seen as a great opportunity for manufacturers which are requesting this type of systems more frequently.
Another possibility offered by the water-borne systems is the possibility to clean using specific detergents replacing the use of solvents to wash solvent-based products.
