Water-Borne Dispersion Developments for Architectural Coatings Solutions for Interior Premium and Sustainable Paints

With customers demanding more and more from exterior paint systems, how do we evaluate new technologies against their claims?

This talk looks to explore the challenges of predicting durability in experimental paint systems. What causes degradation in paint films? Is there correlation between accelerated weathering systems and outdoor exposure?

After exploring these questions and more, we will begin to understand the challenges in creating a paint for the harsh NZ environment. 


Jack Hayden is a paint chemist with 13 years’ experience in the industry. He holds a BSc in Applied Chemistry from Northumbria University.
