The VOCs released from solvent-borne coatings is the core reason for the switch of manufacturers to water-borne coatings. Also, other properties, like low odor, more durability, and more block resistance make waterborne coatings more preferable. There are many regulations from several governments, which supports water-based coatings. In recent times there has been a propensity to seek coatings with high usability, and water clean-up characteristics among the users, water-borne coatings meet the requirements, and also facilitate low viscosity, without the addition of low-molecular weight monomers.
