Southern Society for Coatings Technology (SSCT)

Miramar Beach, Florida | April 23 - 26, 2023

Eastern Coatings Show (ECS)

Atlantic City, New Jersey | May 16 - 18, 2023

Cleveland Coatings Society (CCS)

Cleveland, Ohio | June 6 - 7, 2023


Waterbased Hydrophobic Agents in Architectural Paints and Coatings

Presented by Cody Lindemulder (at SSCT and ECS)

  • The science behind emulsion technology with focus on silicones and waxes role as hydrophobic agents.
  • Gain fundamental understanding of emulsion principles for effective hydrophobic paints and coatings design.
  • Polysiloxanes vs. Silicone Resins: beading effect on surfaces, water uptake reduction, and increasing water vapor permeability.
  • Modified paraffin wax emulsions for strong reduction of dirt pick-up and increased early water resistance.
  • Introducing VARIPHOB by CHT, its unique properties and advantages.

Sustainable Wax and Silicone Emulsions for Industrial Coatings Applications

Presented by Bruce Berglund (at ECS and CCS)

  • How to meet increasing demands for high performance, sustainable coatings employing more natural materials with substantial health, safety, and environmental properties.
  • Wax emulsion technology utilizes paraffin-free, natural waxes with surfactant packages to produce extremely high regulatory compliance formulations. 
  • Barrier additives for water and oil repellency, block resistance and water beading while providing or preventing water vapor permeability.
  • Introducing ULTRALUBE by CHT, its unique properties and advantages.
  • View additional ULTRALUBE surface modifiers information here 


High Molecular Weight Silicone Emulsions

Presented by Robert Graff (at CCS)

  • The importance of high molecular weight silicone emulsions as slip and anti-mar additives for aqueous and non-aqueous coatings.
  • Challenges of preparation aqueous mechanical emulsions due to handling of highly viscous materials and specialized processing equipment and emulsifiers requirements.
  • New advancement in emulsions processing - SILCO by CHT.
  • View more details about SILCO leveling, wetting, dispersing additives here
