Plenary Speaker - Faraz Azadi, C3Nano - Advanced Materials to Enable the Flexible Electronics Revolution
New coatings, materials, and processes are required to enable the next generation of flexible electronics.  C3Nano has developed Activegrid™ - the highest performing (solution - coated) flexible conductor.  Activegrid, a patented technology, employs Nanoglue™, a proprietary chemical sintering agent that fuses nanowires (NWs) into a nanoscale metallic grid upon coating and drying.  The fusing is achieved by the selective nucleation of the conductive Nanoglue at the junctions between NWs.  The ability to deliver the minimal amount of metal and still achieve low resistances engenders ultra-low haze transparent conductors which have been, or are being, integrated into a variety of consumer electronics applications.  The nanoscale nature of Activegrid allows for incredible flexibility and robustness.  In this presentation, Activegrid will be compared to the incumbent transparent conducting technology for display applications as well as other potential replacement solutions.  Other novel technologies that are being developed at C3Nano such as manipulating the color of transparent conductors, and advanced extremely durable materials for emerging applications, will also be covered. Finally, the supply chain for next-generation and flexible devices, C3Nano’s key industrial partnerships, and a technology roadmap will be discussed.

The Sidney Lauren Memorial Lecture - Thermal Characterization of Solvent-Free Epoxy Coatings by Rheology and Kinetics Combined - Sherwin Williams
Abstract
Thermal Characterization of Solvent-Free Epoxy Coatings by Rheology and Kinetics Combined

Rheology and kinetics are a pair of indispensable attributes to define thermally reactive coatings and paints.  In this work, VOCs-free epoxy coating cure paths under heat are characterized via viscoelastic and kinetical behaviors with functional powder coating formulations as examples.  As a result, what the gel point, the minimal complex viscosity (h*min) and the shear moduli G’ & G’’ from rheological curves, and as well the maximal cure rate (ȧmax or damax/dt) and the peak temperature (Tpeak) out of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) exothermic profiles essentially mean when it comes to an application-oriented formulation are quantitatively interpreted with respect to dynamic modulus, viscosity, and the instant extent of cure (a).  Events of vitrification and de-vitrification in a cure process are pertinently observable for high glass transition temperature (Tg) epoxy matrix coatings unless a fast enough heating rate (b) to a high enough temperature is employed.  Complete cure description provides strong insights into product developments allowing particular flow and cure properties balanced to boost line performance, applicable to nearly all B-staged thermosetting systems of 100% solids such as conditioned prepregs, adhesives and underfills besides epoxy-based liquid, e-coat, and powder primers or overcoats.

Phase-change Coatings with Thermoresponsive Transparency for Building Temperature Regulation - Clark University
Abstract
Phase-change coatings with Thermoresponsive Transparency for Building Temperature Regulation
Co-authors: Pramod Mishra, Kelli Stockmal, Giuseppe Ardito, Steven Van Dessel and Mingjiang Tao

A series of coatings containing solid-solid phase-changing polymeric matrices have been synthesized by photo-initiated polymerization of methacrylate-based precursors.  The transmittance of these coatings in the UV to IR wavelength range changes reversibly as a function of temperature, and has been utilized as a design parameter for the development of temperature regulating building enclosures.  The latent heat storage capacity of these materials can be controlled by tailoring their composition, crosslink density, and porosity.  Shape stable matrices with heats of melting surpassing 120 kJ/g and clear/opaque transmittance ratios larger than 80 can be prepared using this methodology.  A combination of finite element simulation and experimental data will be used to discuss the implementation feasibility of these thermoresponsive coatings in different types of building enclosures.

Novel Silyl-Polyurethane Crosslinkers for Scratch and Stain Resistant NISO Coatings - Evonik
Abstract
Novel Silyl-Polyurethane Crosslinkers for Scratch and Stain Resistant NISO Coatings
Co-authors: Tobias Unkelhӓuβer, and Michael Brignone

Traditional two-component polyurethanes are known for their high chemical resistance, weatherability, and toughness.    The high reactivity of the isocyanate group that imparts fast cure also requires appropriate personal protective equipment for proper handling to ensure that the applicator is protected from exposure.  Non-isocyanate-based polyurethane coatings are of interest principally as they could potentially impart the physical properties of polyurethanes while providing easier handling.
This paper presents a new technology based on silane-functional polyurethane crosslinkers that can be used in either 1K or 2K polyurethane coatings, and for either ambient or heat-cured systems.  These silane functional crosslinkers can react via moisture cure with themselves or with hydroxy functional resins similar to a standard polyurethane.  These systems have shown remarkable resistance to graffiti and stains, and are good for both architectural and wood coatings.  Their mar resistance and scratch resistance are exceptional compared to standard polyurethanes.  These findings will be presented in this paper.

High Solids Dispersions for UV Cured Coatings - Clariant
Abstract
High Solids Dispersions for UV Cured Coatings

Colorants for UV curable coatings are uniquely suitable for energy efficient curing process, and are part of the green revolution in the coatings industry.  In these low VOC colorants, some of the pigments are biobased.  Compared to waterbased colorants, these dry faster and compared to solventbased colorants, these are free of volatile organic compounds, and offer superior gloss and finish properties on wood, plastic, glass, and other substrates.  In other words, these colorants for UV curable coatings offer another option to reduce solvent emissions, and quick curing process reducing energy consumption.  Initially designed for wood finishes, new applications include alternatives for some powder coatings and sign coatings (on plastic & glass) with excellent durability and technical properties.  Due to their unique composition, these colorants are compatible in a variety of resin systems, and offer advantages over UV cured water & solvent types.  With a gamut of 16 colorants (using pigments with interior and exterior durability, opaque and transparent), formulators now have options to match many shades in 3 - 60 microns thick films to satisfy their customer needs.  In addition, these colorants have excellent shelf stability, a major improvement over the previous technology which was a hindrance to popularity of such products, and have global registration.

Applications of Dynamic Mechanical Analysis to Characterize Coating Performance - TA Instruments
Abstract: Applications of Dynamic Mechanical Analysis to Characterize Coating Performance

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) is an underutilized capability in characterizing coatings.  The performance of a coating is more often evaluated by directly applying destructive deformation such as abrasion, scratch, delamination, and elongation-at-break.  These tests are valuable in differentiating performance, but they can show significant variability and do not provide insight into the relationship between chemical composition and end-use properties.
The viscoelastic mechanical properties of a coating are highly relevant to attributes such as flexibility, adhesion, and abrasion and scratch resistance.  This can be dependent on the glass transition of the formulation components, but characterizing this is often neglected if the operating temperature of the final coating is not a concern.  Routine testing of glass transition behavior by DMA can be valuable in understanding the effects of changes in formulation on final properties, and on the chemical compatibility of the components.
This work will present DMA measurements of commercial coatings to demonstrate a relationship between viscoelastic behavior and physical properties.  Testing will include both linear and non-linear viscoelastic properties, and the effects of environmental conditions such as humidity and submersion.  Testing will primarily focus on free films of coatings, but will also demonstrate the ability to measure coatings permanently bonded to a substrate for applications where generating free films is not experimentally feasible.

UV-VIS Resistant Acrylic Latexes For Wood Coating Applications by Encapsilation of Inorganic NPS Using Miniemulsion Polymermization - Lavel University
Abstract
UV-VIS Resistant Acrylic Latexes For Wood Coating Applications by Encapsilation of Inorganic NPS Using Miniemulsion Polymerization
Co-authors: Anna M. Ritcey, and Véronic Landry


Translucent coatings containing UV absorbers, hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS) and biocides can substantially slow down the weathering process of wood and maintain its natural colour for a period of time.  However, there are few commercially available coatings that can push refinishing intervals past two or three years, which is partly explained by the premature photodegradation and the leaching of additives in coatings.  In our previous work, it was shown that nanoparticles could efficiently be encapsulated in the polymer matrix to develop a coating resistant to black-stain fungi.  Based on these results, inorganic (zinc oxide and silver) nanoparticles with various sizes were functionalized and incorporated in acrylic polymer particles via miniemulsion polymerization.  The formulations were applied on white spruce (Picea glauca) and exposed to 2,000 hours of accelerated UV radiation, and evaluated against a control formulation containing a commercial UV absorber.  The comparison between the various systems was based on color and gloss retention, FTIR spectroscopy, and variation in the glass transition temperature.  After 1,000 hours of accelerated UV exposure, results suggest that zinc oxide and silver nanoparticles could be used in the development of UV-Vis resistant clear coatings for wood.

Crosslinking Water-borne Coatings with Bipodal Silanes for Improved Corrosion Protection Performance - Evonik Corporation
Abstract
Crosslinking Water-borne Coatings with Bipodal Silanes for Improved Corrosion Protection Performance

Co-authors: Dr. Sheba Bergman


As global environmental concerns continue to overshadow the use of well-established metal surface pretreatment processes such as chromate treatment and phosphatization, the need for environmentally-friendly corrosion protection systems has never been greater.  A promising solution to this worldwide regulatory issue is waterborne silane technology, which can offer a heavy metal-free, VOC-free alternative to protecting metals from corrosion.  The mechanism behind this corrosion protection can best be explained by the passivation of a metal surface with a waterborne silane film, which acts as a barrier to water, salts, and other corroding materials in the surrounding environment.  Most waterborne silane technology requires high temperature curing procedures for optimal results, which can be difficult to achieve in certain applications or industries.  With the use of bipodal silanes, the additional crosslinking introduced into the system can alleviate the need for this high temperature curing procedure.  In this novel work, we demonstrate (analytically and experimentally) that the incorporation of a bipodal silane into waterborne silane systems improves the surface passivation of the metal surface, enhances the hydrophobicity of the system, and increases the crosslinking density of the system, leading to significant improvements in the corrosion resistance of waterborne silane technology.

Factors Affecting Sealer Performance on Concrete - Evonik Corporation
Abstract
Factors Affecting Sealer Performance on Concrete
Co-author: Gary Johnson

It is often assumed that solventbased sealers give better performance than waterborne formulations on concrete because the solventbased sealers are assumed to penetrate better into the concrete matrix.  In practice, it can be difficult to measure actual penetration of a sealer into concrete as dyes and colorants used to highlight the sealer may show different migration properties than the polymeric binder.  Confocal Raman spectroscopy mapping has been used to map the penetration depth of solventbased, 100% solids, and waterborne sealers that employ acrylic and epoxy binders.  This mapping shows that neither solventbased nor waterborne formulations showed any significant penetration into the concrete substrate beyond the first few microns of the open surface.  A study was also conducted using a model waterborne acrylic sealer formulation to determine whether additives might influence the penetration of the sealer into the concrete and other factors that could affect the performance of the waterborne coating.  This work has shown that the addition of anti-foaming, coalescing surfactants can improve the protective properties of the coating by improving air release and increasing film network formation at the concrete surface.

Abstract
Waterborne Polyurethane Dispersions with Enhanced Hydrophobicity for Direct to Metal Application
Co-author: Szuping Lu

Polyurethane dispersions (PUDs) has been found in many high performance water-based coatings due to excellent properties and weatherability. Considerably attempts have been made to improve corrosion resistance and mechanical properties through polymer structure and composition engineering to provide a robust system for direct-to-metal (DTM) application. In this work, by incorporating hydrophobic building blocks and structural design of waterborne PUDs results in excellent anti-corrosion performance and water resistance compared to conventional PUDs. In addition, an adhesion study on cold rolled steel (CRS) by peeling strength will be presented and compared to industrial DTM water-based resins, and water absorption and early water resistance will also be evaluated.

Effect of Low VOC Coalescents on Film Formation, Dirt Pickup Resistance and Surfactant Leaching of Waterborne Paints - Oxiteno
Abstract
Effect of Low VOC Coalescents on Film Formation, Dirt Pickup Resistance and Surfactant Leaching of Waterborne Paints
Co-authors: Robson André Pagani, Natália Freitas de Paula, Rafael Augusto Caldato, Raquel da Silva, and Silmar Balsamo Barrios

Usually, low VOC waterborne paints generate dry paint films with lower hardness and dirt pickup resistance due to the usage of high boiling point coalescents.
In this work, the effect of low VOC coalescents on latex film formation, hardness evolution, accelerated dirt pickup resistance and surfactant leaching of waterborne paints will be explored.
AFM (Atomic Force Microscopy) images of styrene-acrylic and pure acrylic latexes containing 4 wt% of different coalescents show that low VOC coalescents generated films more coalesced and smoother than standard high VOC coalescent.
A new class of low VOC coalescent generated semi-gloss paints with hardness evolution and accelerated dirt pickup resistance higher than commercial low VOC coalescents and similar to standard high VOC coalescent.
Moreover, flat paints formulated with this low VOC coalescent dried at harsh conditions presented lower surfactant leaching in comparison to the ones formulated with standard high VOC coalescent.
These results suggest that there is a correlation between surfactant leaching and film formation assessed through AFM.

Abstract
1K FEVE Blends With Improved Corrosion Resistance

Fluoroethylene vinyl ether (FEVE) based topcoats are well known for their extremely long-lasting gloss and color retention exceeding 40 years of service.  In this study, we evaluated blends of various acrylic resins to determine if the low water absorption and high durability against UV degradation of a FEVE-based resin can offer additional corrosive protection when used in a topcoat as a single pack 1K coating formulation.  Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy was used along with other accelerated testing methods including cyclic salt fog/UV exposure to evaluate corrosion resistance.

Low molecular weight, liquid ethylene propylene diene rubber (L-EPDM) has been known in the industry for many years.  Common applications include rubber goods, oil additives, and adhesives.  Recently, these elastomers have found utility in liquid applied roof coatings.  These resins, formulated into solventbased liquid coatings, may be cured with peroxide or UV radiation, and are often used as maintenance coatings for flat or low slope roofs.  However, adoption into many markets is limited by the high solvent content of these coatings.  Recently, a waterborne suspension of L-EPDM has been developed.  This material can easily be formulated into a waterborne coating and is curable with metal driers (1K), or peroxides (2K) and/or UV radiation.  The suspension can be used alone or with other resins, or as an additive to improve the properties of coatings formulations.  Properties of cured coatings made from the waterborne L-EPDM are similar to those of their solventbased counterparts.  This paper will discuss L-EPDM waterborne suspension properties, coating formulation, application and curing methods, and final film properties.

Abstract
Advanced Characterization of Nanoparticles using High-Resolution High-Sensitivity Nano-Analytics and Machine Learning

Nanoparticles research plays a very important role in numerous industrial applications such as pharmaceuticals, biomedical applications, coatings, inks, pigments, energy materials, and filtration.  To engineer nanoparticles with unique properties, improve synthesis methods and innovate new products, the chemistry, size, and shape of individual nanoparticles must be characterized.
Here we present how high-resolution, high-sensitivity, nano-analytics techniques such as correlative Helium Ion Microscopy and Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy chemical analysis can be used in nanoparticles research.  This talk will overview applications on catalysts, coatings, and cosmetics.
This presentation will also include an example on how advanced segmentation using machine learning was successfully used to identify individual nanoparticles in agglomerates to determine their particle area distribution.

Low Emission Epoxy Technology for Moisture Vapor Barrier Flooring Applications - Evonik
Abstract
Low Emission Epoxy Technology for Moisture Vapor Barrier Flooring Applications
Co-authors: Shafiq Fazel and Robert Rasing


Two-component epoxy technology has a proven record of excellent chemical resistance, mechanical strength, and adhesion to various substrates.  It has been widely used in many different applications, especially in concrete coatings. Epoxy concrete coatings improves aesthetics, durability, and provide protection to concrete substrates.  Traditionally, many epoxy systems require the use of plasticizers to ensure full chemical conversion of the polymer matrix.  One of the challenges with epoxy floor coatings application is the potential emission of plasticizer to the building inhabitants and environment throughout the service life of a floor.  Legislation and end-user demand have driven new product development to focus not only on maintaining high performance but also controlling potential plasticizer emissions.
Another challenge for concrete floor coatings is moisture vapor permeance through the concrete floor.  Moisture can cause deterioration of flooring adhesives and delamination of coatings by osmotic action, thus reducing or completely eliminating the benefits of epoxy coatings on concrete.  It is one of the frequent causes for floor failure.  The cost to replace a failed floor can be significant.  Recent innovative technology developments have offered a solution to remediate the issue of moisture vapor transmittance through the concrete floor.
This paper will present epoxy systems based on innovative total reactive curing agent technology that is extremely low in emission and has excellent moisture vapor barrier property.  This fundamental study highlights the full property development of these systems.  The paper will discuss model formulations using the new curing agents and key performance attributes.  A combination of low emission, tailorable working time, and fast property development offers coating formulators the choices to design new floor systems incorporating ultra-thin coatings with moisture vapor barrier.

Confocal Microscopy Techniques for Coatings Research - Arkema Coating Resins
Abstract
Confocal Microscopy Techniques for Coatings Research
Co-authors: Dana Garcia and Jeffrey Schneider

Microscopy and vibrational spectroscopy are complementary techniques.  The combination of the two can provide the most complete information regarding distributions of different coatings ingredients as well as the fate and impact of liquids or particulates that come in contact with the dried coating films.
This paper reports the applications of confocal Raman microscopy and confocal laser scanning microscopy in coatings research.  Due to their chemical specificity and high-resolution spatial analysis, they are powerful tools for determining chemical composition and component distribution of multi-component coatings systems.  These two techniques are employed to analyze and solve common coatings problems such as surfactant leaching, stain resistance, and washability. The usefulness and advantages of these confocal techniques are demonstrated by the examples given in this paper.

Abstract
Oxidizable Phenolic Urethanes - Bio-Based OPU

A novel line of sustainable, biobased, air-drying resins have recently been introduced that will aid a formulator of oleoresinous wood finishes and stains to meet increasingly restrictive VOC regulations.  Known as oxidizable phenolic urethanes or OPUs, these products can be used to modify oleoresinous vehicles (alkyds, oil modified urethanes, varnishes, vegetable oils, etc.) to dramatically reduce dry time, improve scratch and mar resistance, enhance toughness, increase gloss, and improve chemical resistance. This presentation will review the chemistry of traditional oxidizable vehicles, phenolic resins, and urethanes to appreciate how this novel technology hybrids all three to produce improvements in the application and performance of VOC-compliant wood finishes and stains.

Understanding Polymer-based Coating Transport Property Differences between Hydrophilic Particles (hydrogels) and Semi-impermeable Particles (inorganic pigment)
Abstract
Understanding Polymer-based Coating Transport Property Differences between Hydrophilic Particles (hydrogels) and Semi-impermeable Particles (inorganic pigment)
Co-authors:  Eric B. Williams, Joseph Tyson, Gopinath Subramanian, and James W. Rawlins

Organic polymer coatings protect metal substrates through a variety of mechanisms depending on exposure time and environmental severity. For example, coatings behave as water, oxygen and electrolyte barriers (with varying degrees of success), and corrosion inhibiting pigments or electrically active additives can be incorporated. The aforementioned protection methods consistently support the need for limiting water, oxygen, and/or electrolyte content at the polymer-metal interface which is rarely achieved in practice.  Therefore, quantifying and understanding the path water takes and the momentary/equilibrium location of the sorbed water in relation to the coating-substrate interface has promise to afford mechanistic understandings of water management to facilitate increased coating performance longevity. Water interactions with water loving moieties, molecules, and various shaped particles offer a route to alter water management methods and mechanisms.  We utilized hydrogel particles to create distinct water-loving domains to allow for concentrated ionic content, defined particle diameter, and quantifiable swellability in localized regions to understand and intentionally alter water and electrolyte interactions with both the parent polymer and hydrogel particles.  
Previous literature highlighted the utility of hydrogel particles with defined size and hydrophilic character to limit the through-film water diffusion to the substrate.  By limiting water accumulation at the substrate, adhesion was maintained during wet-dry cycles when blended into dried and annealed thermoplastic polymer solutions.  Our data suggests that hydrophilic inclusions act as water scavengers/traps while applying increased hydraulic pressure on the parent polymer film through swelling, thereby reducing the equilibrium water content for the parent polymer.  The incorporation of hydrogel consistently resulted in limiting the propagation of corrosion at a defect to an overall 2% by area, suggesting an entrapment mechanism occurs when water diffuses into the polymer films likely electrolyte interactions.  The films that contain hydrogels possess a higher water concentration at equilibrium than control films (e.g., 10% more water held).  Comparisons with non-swellable pigment particles were performed to delineate between tortuosity and transport properties within the coating.  Specifically, reported herein are the characterization of low molecular weight thermoplastic Phenoxy® resin solubilized in a solvent blend with various pigment volume concentrations (PVC) of TiO2 and weight percent of hydrogel particles to understand the relationship between fillers and additives during environmental exposure. Computational and FTIR-ATR experimental results were utilized to compare non-pigmented to the pigmented counterparts to gain understanding in diffusivity differences from the various formulations.

TUTORIAL - Fundamentals of Polymer Design for Waterborne Coatings
Tutorial:
Fundamentals of Polymer Design for Waterborne Coatings
Abstract:

A waterborne coating is a liquid composition comprising a polymeric binder that is dispersed, or much less frequently, dissolved in water.  The average size of the dispersed polymer particles is typically in the 50-500 nm range.  The polymers may be formed by polymerization in water, typically using emulsion polymerization; or they may be pre-formed by radical solution polymerization, or bulk or solution step-growth polymerization, and subsequently dispersed in water.  Dispersion and/or stabilization of the polymer particles in water is brought about using surfactants.  Acrylic latex polymers are the dominant example of polymers created in water using emulsion polymerization.  Alkyds, polyurethanes, and epoxies are examples of polymers that are dispersed in water after polymerization.  The basic principles of emulsion polymerization will be discussed, as well as the techniques used to disperse pre-formed polymers in water.

Eco-Friendly 1K Polyurethane Dispersion with Comparable Performance to 2K Waterborne Coatings - Covestro
Abstract
1K Polyurethane Dispersion with Comparable Performance to 2K Waterborne Coatings

Two component waterborne polyurethane (2KWB PU) coatings have been recognized as coatings with excellent performance properties and are used in a wide variety of applications.  However, they require the introduction of a curing agent as a second component to provide the crosslinking needed to enhance coating performance.  Several challenges for 2KWB PU coatings are well known, including limited pot life, increased waste, potential risk for mixing failure, and additional process steps before application.  Therefore, in certain markets, paint formulators continue to look for one component (1K) WB coatings that perform comparable to 2KWB coatings.  Furthermore, they also need to address increasingly stringent environmental regulations for low volatile organic compound (VOC) levels while still meeting technical requirements.  To meet these customer needs and more stringent regulations, an intensive polyurethane dispersion (PUD) development program was undertaken.  This paper discusses the performance properties of newly developed 1K PUD with both N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP) containing and NMP-free PUDs that demonstrate comparable performance properties to 2KWB coatings.

New Ways for Waterborne 2K Epoxy Formulations
Abstract: New Ways for Waterborne 2K Epoxy Formulations

Historically, conventional solventbased epoxy technologies dominated the primer and mid-coat application areas within the protective coatings market. These historical systems offer exceptional overall performance with regard to film and barrier, rheology, and storage properties due in part to their optimized additive packages. Continued volatile organic compound regulations as well as the industry desire to move towards more environmentally-friendly options have placed an emphasis on developing alternative technologies for use in this formulation space.
Waterborne epoxy systems have been in use for several years, typically in less challenging service environments; however, with recent advancements in waterborne epoxy technologies, the protective coatings market is now making greater use of waterborne epoxy systems in primer and mid-coat applications. Like their predecessors, waterborne epoxy systems must also employ optimized additive packages to achieve the highest level of performance. System rheology is an important aspect for these systems as it has direct impact on properties such as anti-sagging, anti-settling and application properties. Existing waterborne rheology modifier technologies display limited functionality in these next generation systems, and there are obvious limitations on their effectiveness. There is a need to develop new rheology additives that will address the shortcomings of existing technologies.
This presentation will not only provide an overview of the limitations seen with existing rheology modifier technologies but will also highlight recent developments that are allowing waterborne epoxy systems to close the performance gap with traditional solventbased and solvent-free systems.

Influence of Continuous Reactor B-Staging on Rheological and Thermomechanical Behavior of a Benzoxazine Matrix - Western Washington University
Abstract
Influence of Continuous Reactor B-Staging on Rheological and Thermomechanical Behavior of a Benzoxazine Matrix

Co-authors: Cecile Grubb, and John Misasi

The use of benzoxazine resin as a matrix in aerospace composite prepreg applications is desirable due to its inherent flame retardance and relatively low cost.  Prepreg performance properties before cure, such as matrix volume fraction, flow, and tack, are driven by the matrix prepolymer and are highly dependent on its level of conversion, or b-stage, as this impacts the viscosity during pre-impregnation.  This research sought to determine the impact of processing technique on matrix properties by comparing two b-staging methods: a traditional batch process and a continuous process using a twin-screw extruder.  The enthalpy of reaction and glass transition temperature were determined via differential scanning calorimetry and used to quantify the level of prepolymer b-stage from each process.  Prepolymer b-stage was then related to flow properties through study of viscosity profiles and gel points via parallel plate rheometry.  Finally, the effects of processing were analyzed in terms of cured thermomechanical behavior using dynamic mechanical analysis.  Significant reductions in the time to conversion were observed in materials processed using the continuous reactor.  Comparable rheological and thermomechanical properties were observed in material produced via both b-staging methods.

Understanding Structure-property Relationships in Layered Materials and Oxides Transmission Electron Microscopy
Abstract: 
Development of new functional nanomaterials and nanosystems play an important role on advancement of society through more efficient energy use, improvement on energy conversion processes, more efficient transportation and sustainable products with less environmental impact. 
Properties of modern nanomaterials are controlled on an atomic scale and thus research and development of nanomaterials requires atomic scale imaging and analysis see for example [1]. The development of materials or devices with optimized functions often require to perform in situ studies of actual functional state of the materials at conditions other than the room temperature and standard high vacuum condition of electron microscope columns, in order to allow some processes like oxidation to be observed and analyzed at high spatial resolution.
Implementation of differential pumping apertures in an aberration corrected TEM (FEI Titan ETEM [2]) enables environmental studies, e.g. oxidation, reduction, or corrosion experiments [3]. On the other hand MEMS technology based in situ heating stages with more accurate knowledge and temperature control together with very fast settling time enables quantitative atomic scale studies at elevated temperatures [4]. Recent years have seen the rapid technological development which enables in situ studies of materials while maintaining high-resolution imaging and analysis at elevated temperatures, under electrical bias and gas environment [5-8].
In this contribution we will describe the path to have an accurate knowledge and control of experimental conditions in advanced in situ S/TEM experiments. Special attention will be given to the image resolution and sensitivity in ETEM gas environments and the temperature accuracy and uniformity provided by NanoEx™ heating stages [9]. Recent application examples will be presented to highlight these in situ S/TEM capabilities.  Some aspects of more routine analytical experiments with ‘workhorse’ 200kV TEM/STEM systems will also be presented.

Controlling Finish Quality by Controlling Air Temperature - The Real Story - Saint Clair Systems
Abstract
Controlling Finish Quality by Controlling Air Temperature - The Real Story

It has long been believed that air temperature has a significant impact on spray coating finish quality, primarily due to its impact on the temperature, and therefore the viscosity of the atomized particles.  Moreover, millions of dollars are spent each year controlling the booth ambient environment based on this belief.
During our 2018 Waterborne Symposium presentation, "Guns or Bells, How do I Decide", we introduced the concept that booth ambient air may not exert as much influence on particle temperature as has been traditionally assumed.  Subsequent research has proven that while air temperature does have a significant impact on particle temperature, it is not the ambient air that is the culprit.
In this presentation, we advance on the work introduced in 2018 to demonstrate how air temperature affects finish quality, which air temperature is important, and how controlling the right air temperature can significantly improve your finish quality, resulting in higher first-pass yields and lower impact on your process outcomes from variations in ambient temperature that occur from day-to-night and from season-to-season.  We will also demonstrate how improving the focus of your control efforts can significantly reduce your operating cost, increase your thoughput, and enhance your competitive position in the marketplace.

Abstract
POSS UV Additives: Epoxy, Acrylic, Oxetane
Co-authors: Joseph J. Schwab, and Sukhendu Hait

POSS additives provide a simple-to-use chemical tool kit that that requires only small loading levels to improve traditional formulations.  At 1.5 - 3.0 nm in diameter, POSS cages provide a tremendous amount of surface area and volume control when incorporated into formulations.  POSS additives are also used as compatibilizing tie-layers in coating stacks and to impart adhesion, hardness, and scratch resistance properties in optical coatings.  POSS additives also improve the degree and rate of ultraviolet radiation cure due in part to their surface area and high degree of functionalization.  The fundamental attributes of Epoxy, Acrylic, and Oxetane POSS will be presented and related to material science concepts that explain the observed effects in UV coating formulations.

Engineered PolySaccharides: A Novel Biomaterial Additive for the Coatings Industry with Multifunctional Properties - Chemquest
Abstract
Engineered PolySaccharides: A Novel Biomaterial Additive for the Coatings Industry with Multifunctional Properties

Polysaccharides are important biopolymers with a wide range of industrial and consumer product applications.  Historically, structural polysaccharides such as cellulose have been the backbone of early material science for a range of applications including coatings.
A new family of engineered polysaccharides has been developed through selective polymerization of sucrose to provide a series of materials ranging in molecular weights, solubility, polymer architecture, and particle morphology.  The underlying enzymatic polymerization process offers the opportunity to design the polymer structure and the material properties of these new biomaterials. One specific example, the linear alpha-1,3-polyglucose, has been assessed for applications in coatings.  This material has been tested for its ability to modify the rheological, mechanical, and optical properties of interior flat coatings.  Our findings suggest that relatively minor concentrations of this engineered polysaccharide have the capacity to function as a substantial rheology modifying (thickening) agent in coatings with attractive shear-thinning characteristics.  The engineered polysaccharide significantly enhances the opacity, whitening, tint strength, and matting characteristics in certain waterborne coating formulations.  With TiO2 costs continuing to increase, the trend remains to identify novel materials that can displace or complement TiO2.  A multi-functional material that offers rheology engineering, opacity building, whitening, tint strength, and matting characteristics could be an attractive new additive to the coatings marketspace where several properties can be imparted to a coating formulation with one material.

The Evolution of Exterior Release Coatings - Wacker Chemical Corporation
Abstract
The Evolution of Exterior Release Coatings
Co-authors: Amanda Andrews, and Mark Westfall

In a world of evolving performance, environmental and safety demands, silicone release coatings have met the challenge of not only increasing consumer safety and lessening their environmental impact, but also increasing their performance as well.  Silicone release coatings have evolved from tin catalyzed oxime based one-part RTV systems to less hazardous amine catalyzed one-part RTV systems, to finally, amine catalyzed moisture cured resin systems. This paper will outline the safety improvements that brought these coatings from having to be applied by contractors in respirators and chemical resistant clothing, to being able to be put on the shelves at local hardware stores to be applied by the homeowner with minimal PPE requirements. Silicone release coatings hold an important role in the market.  As we use them to protect surfaces from graffiti and weathering.  The performance of anti-graffiti has improved so that graffiti no longer requires harsh solvents to remove graffiti, but graffiti can be simply power washed away.
A new type of silicone release coating is the one component dry erase coating. This new coating can be applied and convert many substrates into idea spaces or lists that can be easily cleaned with a cloth or eraser. The low VOC property of this coating also makes it safe to use in homes or offices.  The current and previous market leaders have been successful by selling 2 part coatings with isocyanates, urethanes, and epoxies that have provided good performance, but at the cost of having hazardous chemicals in homes and offices.  The two part technologies also leave room for error of the applicators by needing to be mixed on site. To limit errors with mixing ratios, many formulation instructions require mixing the entire containers, but that leaves no extra product for patch up or doing multiple day applications.  This one part technology requires no on-site mixing and no special application equipment to apply.

Abstract
The Use of VCI Inhibitors in Conjunction with or Replacement of Traditional Corrosion Inhibitors

Co-author: Rick Shannon

The use of traditional corrosion inhibitors in paints and coatings continues to be challenged from both an environmental and performance aspect.  End users are demanding better corrosion performance and in many cases this cannot be achieved with traditional zinc or chromate type inhibitors.  The use of VCIs(vapor corrosion inhibitors) in coating formulations has shown that in many systems, they can replace the older technology or significantly improve the performance of the system by working in synergy with the existing inhibitors.

Higher Performance, Higher Solids – A New Platform for High Solids Alkyds - Arkema
Abstract
Higher Performance, Higher Solids – A New Platform for High Solids Alkyds
Co-author: Jun Kim

In many market segments, alkyd technology offers a value proposition unmatched by other coating technologies.  As a result, alkyds maintain significant share in these segments.  Increasing market trends towards sustainability are creating a need to adapt the technology without sacrificing coating performance.  High solids, exempt solvents, and waterborne approaches are often evaluated when aiming to reduce the volatile organic content (VOC) of alkyd coatings.  Exempt solvents face limitations in odor, solubility, cost, flash point, and geographic compliance.  Waterborne performance is improving, however, gaps in performance and aesthetics still exist.  For the end-user, high solids approaches require the least investment and are often the simplest approach to meeting VOC targets.  Historically, moving to high solids has come with a compromise in dry time and hardness.  With this in mind, the authors of this paper have continued to advance high solids alkyds and developed a new alkyd platform.  This platform expands performance in the high solids space, and is useful for creating alkyds and modified alkyd polymers that offer low VOC, low viscosity, and fast dry benefits.  Differing from some other high solids approaches, this new platform is derived from readily available feedstock materials and is commercially viable.  This paper will review the versatility of this new technology platform and will demonstrate coating applications that can improve their performance/VOC balance using this development.  Applications span across both architectural and Industrial markets, including agriculture, construction, and earthmoving (ACE), maintenance, wood, and decorative coatings.

Why the Coatings Industry Needs Easy Dispersible Powder Pigment Preparations - Pan Technology
Abstract: Why the Coatings Industry Needs Easy Dispersible Powder Pigment Preparations 

Many coatings companies waste countless hours milling their own dispersions. Others purchase liquid dispersions to avoid the costly grinding process. Easy Dispersible Powder Pigment Preparations eliminate the grinding process while giving higher tinting strength and transparency at equal pigment loading. It is not possible to get the same transparency by dispersing in a liquid medium.
 
The benefits of easy Dispersible Powder Pigment Preparations are numerous.  
* Zero VOC’s 
* High speed dispersible 
* 100 % solids powder preparations 
* Higher pigment loads than there wet counterparts can achieve 
* Optimal color, transparency and gloss development 
* Non-hazardous storage 
* Organic and inorganic pigments available 
Achieve cost reductions through higher tinting strength on a per pound basis versus wet preparations. Factor in the production time and cost savings and you have a winning formula.

Challenges in Formulating Water Based Clear Sealers for Concrete - Specialty Polymers
Abstract
Challenges in Formulating Water Based Clear Sealers for Concrete

Solventbased acrylic sealers for concrete have been used for many years and are considered by many to be the performance standard for sealers.  The primary drawback to these solvent based sealers is that they are very high in volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and industry regulations are driving sealer manufacturers to evaluate low VOC, waterborne alternatives.  Due to differences in their film formation mechanisms, there are differences in performance between most waterborne and solventbased sealers.  Despite these differences, the use of a novel polymer technology has yielded waterborne sealers with an improved balance of properties that is commercially acceptable for today’s concrete sealers.  Performance data of sealers formulated with this new polymer and evaluated against conventional concrete sealers will be presented.

Abstract
Microfibrillated Cellulose – The Effect of a Novel and Renewable Multifunctional Additive on Common Waterborne Coating Issues

Co-author: Ali Moosavifar

There is a growing interest to move towards waterborne systems in the coatings industry due to environmental and occupational health reasons. However, the change is not always straightforward and often new technologies are required to obtain the same performance as with solvent borne systems.
Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC), a value-added and multifunctional product made of cellulose, consisting of fibers with lateral dimensions in the nanoscale and lengths up to micron scale. The main characteristics of this unique fiber structure is its resembling of both water soluble polymers and insoluble additives, leading to a versatile and efficient alternative to technologies currently available. The high inertness, compatibility and stability of MFC is opening up new possibilities for waterborne paints and coatings, especially for the more demanding formulations. MFC secures high viscosity at rest, giving good stability, as well as offering shear thinning behavior and rapid viscosity build-up, which prevents sag during application. The aim of this work was to evaluate the effect of MFC to the rheological behavior of the coating formulation as well
as to the final film properties. Waterborne exterior flat paint, based on a blend of acrylic and vinyl acrylic binderswas used to investigate the effect of MFC on prevention of syneresis as well mud cracking of the  coating. Deep base acrylic paint was used to evaluate the effectiveness of MFC to prevent viscosity loss on tinting, color float and sagging. We will demonstrate how MFC can solve typical challenges in waterborne high quality architectural paints and coatings regarding, for example, mud-cracking, viscosity loss, sagging and sprayability. This study will widen the understanding of the opportunities of MFC on coatings but as well as to demonstrate its potential on other fields such as adhesives and in demanding formulations. Understanding the effect of these novel hybrid type of multifunctional additives on the formulation as well as on the film properties, is essential.

Low VOC Waterborne Epoxy Floor Coatings - Olin Epoxy
Abstract
Low VOC Waterborne Epoxy Floor Coatings


Over the past 30 years, the popularity and use of waterborne (WB) coatings has increased steadily, driven primarily by the desire to reduce the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and their impact on human health and the environment.  Inherently, WB coatings are low-toxic, low odor, eco-friendly, and easy to handle.  Through new WB epoxy technology and advancements in the past 10 - 20 years, WB epoxy coatings maintain all the performance strengths of traditional high VOC solventbased coatings and high solids systems, making them suitable for commercial and industrial use.  This paper describes some of our work in developing WB coatings designed for floor applications in warehouses, garages, hospitals, and light manufacturing plants.  We have developed high film build, self-leveling coatings, and satin gloss roller coatings at very low or even near zero VOC levels.  Various performance aspects of these experimental WB epoxy floor coatings will be discussed, including dry time, Shore D hardness, abrasion resistance, and compressive strength.  Starting formulations and application procedures will also be described.

Fence Exposures Drive Innovation in Exterior Coatings - Dow Chemical
Abstract
Fence Exposures Drive Innovation in Exterior Coatings
Co-authors: Tara Conley, John Calderaio, Solomon Vincent III

Exterior binder development for the architectural market has a significantly longer timeline than binder development for the interior paint market.  Therefore, the toolbox for innovation in the exterior market must encompass several facets: decision making based on accelerated methods paired with weathering data collected on the test fences, and continuous surveying of the commercial paint market to determine innovation needs.  The push for accelerated testing has mirrored the drive for exterior binder development over the years.  Many accelerated test methods have been developed to foster faster decision making on binder chemistries and formulation differences, but the question remains, how do they correlate with Mother Nature?  Another tool used for innovation is benchmarking the commercial landscape, which helps identify performance gaps in the market and understand relationships between paint marketing claims and the performance delivered by the paint.  This paper will demonstrate the balancing act required to deliver innovation for exterior coatings by understanding commercial product performance, accelerated exterior weathering methods for screening fast failures, and long-term test fence exposures that can validate innovative performance.

Abstract
Simulating Water Ingress into a Model Polymer Coating during Exposure to Relative Humidity and Temperature Variations using Multiphysics Finite Element Analysis
Co-authors: James Rawlins and Gopinath Subramanian


Evaluating polymer coating failure experimentally under a range of operating conditions is both time consuming and expensive.  To predict coating failure, it is important to quantify the amount of small molecule ingress into the polymer coatings while accounting for environmental effects, material heterogeneity, and complex geometries.  We accomplish this using multiphysics finite element models to simulate small molecule transport by solving the transport equation with experimentally obtained temperature dependent diffusion coefficients.  This diffusion coefficient was determined via infrared spectroscopy for water through a phenoxy resin coating.  The environmental effects, material heterogeneity, and complex geometries were partitioned into separate modules that can be used to control the simulation complexity.  As an example, we used these models to simulate the barrier performance of a coating on an aerospace fastener.
