Additives based on renewable raw materials for paint and coatings


(04.11.2019)


The limited availability of fossil raw materials, the growing environmental problems and thus increasing environmental awareness, lead to the development of paints and coatings based on renewable resources. Renewable resources are organic substances of plant or animal origin, which are used as raw material for industry or as an energy source. In contrast to fossil raw materials they renew annually or in a manageable period.

In paint or coating formulations you will find binders, additives, pigments and solvents. Bernd Schwegmann GmbH & Co. KG deals with the development of additives. Of course, the percentage of additives in the formulations is lower compared to the other ingredients in the formulations. Nevertheless, it is a very important component, so that paints or coatings can be produced and applied with the same consistent quality.

We asked ourselves which additives ideally should be used for paints and coatings based on renewable raw materials and listed hereafter our available additives that are bio based, so-called "green" additives according to ASTM D 6866.
