Abstract:

Design multifunctional nano-polymer is a challenge to formulate exterior wood coatings with the needed properties to protect wood from weathering and maintain aesthetic value. A balance of properties is required to ensure proper performance, as UV-resistance, water resistance and flexibility, but at the meantime also characteristics of hardness and mechanical properties to improve the surface appearance and final coatings durability.

The choice of polymer emulsion is a critical factor in the overall performance of wood stains and coatings.
