European Coatings LIVE will cover the topic of waterborne coatings at 10 am ET with Ethox Chemicals’ own Dr. Charles Palmer.

Dr. Palmer will present and elaborate on his paper “New Chemistry for Reactive Emulsifiers” before answering questions on a new emulsifier that crosslinks during drying.

He says the importance is that “Ethox’s new reactive surfactants allow alkyd manufacturers or purchasers to convert an existing solvent-based alkyd to a water-based product which is more environmentally friendly. In addition, the coatings made from these reactive surfactants have improved water resistance, hardness, and gloss over other surfactant types. No longer will producers have to use alkyd products specifically designed for waterborne application with their performance limitations, but now can use solvent-based alkyds which have inherently better water resistance.”

Registration for the webinar is free. More information about the presentation as well as registration information can be found by visiting

The EC LIVE webinar series dives into the editorial’s online feature article each month. The author of the current issue’s feature article expands on the topic in more depth and in greater context before answering questions from those in attendance.

Dr. Palmer’s paper discussing the benefits found in the production and performance of aqueous alkyds is in the September issue of European Coatings. Interested readers can access the article at
