Binders for high performance, environmentally-responsible wood coatings

Synthomer’s water-borne, environmentally-responsible binders for interior and exterior wood coatings will help you comply with the latest environmental legislation while meeting the tough performance standards demanded of today’s wood coating products. Our broad range of binders are low-VOC, formaldehyde-free and APEO-free, but they also deliver well-balanced hardness, gloss, wood warming and chemical resistance performance.

These binders will help your wood coating products meet the dual challenge of compliance with environmental legislation and high performance. While solvent-based products have proven their technical performance for decades, ever-tightening EU VOC legislation and consumer awareness have driven the switch from solvent-based to water-based products. Unfortunately, most water-based products still suffer from lower gloss, poor wood warming and low chemical resistance. Synthomer’s binders will help you respond to environmental legislation and meet these performance challenges.

  • Proprietary homogenous and core-shell technology for superior performance.
  • Good substrate penetration.
  • Excellent durability.
  • Outstanding wood warming.
  • Formaldehyde-free and APEO-free.
  • Low-VOC.
