Arkema received the award of best scientific paper at the European Coatings Award 2013 with the presentation "A New Way to Ensure Metal Protection with Waterborne Dispersions".

Arkema has developed an innovative dispersion, Encor® 2433, for waterborne coating formulations that can be applied directly on metals without the need for a primer. This new type of « mono-layer » coating ensures perfect adhesion on a wide range of substrates, outstanding chemical stability and corrosion resistance, and a flawless finish.


In addition to the lower cost of this coating and to the reduction of the application time, the application of a single layer reduces the raw material quantity used. Further more as it consists in a waterborne formulation and not a solventborne one, Encor® 2433 makes it possible to reduce Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emissions.
