Enhancing Coatings’ Water-Resistant Properties
Water resistance is a key requirement in many architectural and industrial coating applications. Water-resistant coatings prevent water and water vapor from penetrating surfaces, thereby preserving the physical and appearance properties of the substrates to which they are applied. Solvay’s specialty polymers and additives help coatings respond to the most challenging environmental conditions, delivering superior water resistance while maintaining other essential properties.
