Elastomeric coatings

Flexible binders for high performance elastomeric coatings

Water-based elastomeric coatings are gaining popularity as the go-to choice for exterior masonry coatings thanks to their low temperature elasticity and good crack bridging properties. However, dirt pick-up is a challenge for these coatings that impacts not only on the aesthetic look of the coatings but more importantly the heat reflection performance: As a coating gets older, dirtier and darker, it absorbs more heat, causing the temperature within a building to increase.

Synthomer has developed a range of binders for high performing elastomeric wall and cool-roof coatings that can be formulated to comply with market standards such as ASTM D6083. They feature outstanding low-temperature elasticity combined with excellent dirt pick-up resistance, allowing you to create premium elastomeric coatings that maintain their heat reflection properties for longer.

  • Low-VOC binders help you create long-life masonry paints, plasters and EIFS.
  • Self- and UV-cross-linkable acrylic dispersions deliver elastic coatings with superior dirt pick-up resistance.
  • Bring outstanding weather resistance to your products.
