ENCOR 2787, Hydrophobic Pure Acrylic For Water-Resistant Coating

October 9. 2023

Understanding Hydrophobic Pure Acrylic

In the world of coatings and sealants, the pursuit of water-resistant solutions has never been more critical. One of the primary difficulties encountered when employing coatings is the occurrence of chalking, cracking, blistering, and flaking as the coating interacts with diverse environmental conditions. 

Hydrophobic Pure Acrylic is a specialized acrylic polymer renowned for its exceptional hydrophobicity, which means it repels water with remarkable efficiency. This remarkable characteristic makes it ideal for coatings that need to withstand exposure to moisture, rain, and humidity without compromising their integrity.

Water whitening testing results of ENCOR 2787 compared to standard acrylic emulsion with 12°C MFFT

Samples were formulated with coalescent for good film formation and applied to a thickness of 150 μm on glass.

Samples were left to dry for 24 hours before they were immersed in water at 23°C for 24 hours. ENCOR 2787 stays transparent after immersion in water.
