When making the switch from solvent-borne to water-borne coatings the goal is to not compromise the function and performance of wood coatings.

Read Dr Peter Greenwoods latest paper on how adding silane-modified colloidal silica enhances performance of water-borne clear coatings. In the study the effect of using epoxy silanemodified colloidal silica in water-based clear coatings on open time and anti-blocking, sanding and mechanical properties was investigated.
