Paints and coatings are required to quickly cure under a broad variety of environmental conditions and deliver solid long-term performance. Achieving a balance during all seasons between quick curing of a coating film, i.e., early rain resistance, while maintaining sufficient workability and open time for an optimized aesthetic appearance is a challenge for the architectural coatings industry. This article describes how the colloidal physics differs between the current standard mechanism to achieve early rain resistance by inhibited coagulants in winter paints and a new mechanism that provides all-season paints. A combination of advanced physical characterization methods, such as electrophoretic mobility, dynamic light scattering and confocal laser scanning microscopy, in combination with application tests, is used to provide a comprehensive mechanism of the early rain resistance achieved by such paints. In addition, it is shown that this new system can be transferred to wood coatings and organic renders. The key finding of this article is that all-season paints combining early rain resistance at cold and damp conditions with open time at high temperatures and dry conditions rely on fast paint film formation with high early integrity rather than coagulants triggered by base evaporation.

Weather conditions affect biocides on exposed outer surfaces on constructions. Contact with water causes hydrolysis and leaching of substances. Ultraviolet radiation may induce photolysis. As a result, a mixture of biocidal active substances and transformation products can be emitted into the environment. In a semi-field study, leaching of the biocidal active substances terbutryn, diuron, octylisothiazolinone, carbendazim, and selected transformation products was observed for two paints containing either a white or a red pigment. Painted test panels were exposed to natural weathering for about 1.5 years. Runoff samples were analyzed during the course of the experiment. At the end of the study, residues of biocidal active substances and transformation products were determined in sections of the test panels. Emissions of substances were mainly observed during the first few months of the experiments. Increased emissions of transformation products were observed during periods of increased global radiation and subsequent periods with relatively high amounts of driving rain. Different patterns of transformation products were observed, especially for terbutryn, both for paints containing different pigments and in experiments that were started in different periods of the year, as well as during different periods of the experiments.

The purpose of this research was to evaluate the impact of selected pigments on the performance of waterborne emulsion paint. Each pigment was incorporated into the paint at 5% w/w. Density and viscosity measurements as well as the rub-out test were used to test the wet state properties of the colored paint. Wet-scrub, adhesion-to-substrate, water-uptake, vapor-permeability, UV-aging, and other tests were conducted to evaluate effects of the pigments on the dried paint. Bohemian green earth pigment was found to have the most positive effect, as it improved the water resistance of the paint without changing its rheological properties. Therefore, this pigment was selected for further studies, in which the pigment was included as part of the paint formula rather than as a post-additive. The results were satisfactory, confirming the compatibility of the pigment with the formula. However, a slight change in the rheological profile of the paint was observed during tests on a rotational rheometer. This research shows the need for intensive quality control measures while testing alternative formulations, to both enable early detection of negative effects and identify possible improvements.

Powder coatings are widely applied for corrosion protection of steel, aluminum, and hot dip galvanized steel in a variety of corrosive environments. Powder coatings are subjected to a number of strict laboratory tests to determine their mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and color stability. Among European quality certificates for powder coatings applied to galvanized steel, the most commonly recognized are GSB-ST and Qualisteelcoat certificates, which also refer to the EN 13438 standard. Certificates of quality for powder coatings are constantly updated according to the latest research results and experience of specialists operating in the field of corrosion protection. This paper presents an experimental evaluation of how the required length of selected accelerated corrosion tests can affect the final assessment of powder coatings. On the example of two powder painting systems: polyester as well as based on epoxy and polyester resins, the paper presents the influence of the time of accelerated corrosion tests: ISO 6270, ISO 9227 (Neutral Salt Spray and Acetic Acid Salt Spray), and ISO 3231 on the protective properties of the coatings. The results of damage assessment according to ISO 4628 have been correlated with the requirements of particular quality specifications. Additionally, based on FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) and EIS (Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy) analyses, the influence of the applied corrosion tests on the degradation degree of the coatings studied has been presented. The paper aims to present a tests for those powder coating systems applied to facilities for which the main requirement is corrosion resistance rather than aesthetics. Full article

Nanotechnology is used, to an increasing extent, in practically every aspect of the economy and society. One area where nanotechnology is constantly advancing is fire protection. Nanostructures are found in elements used in direct protection, such as in protective clothing, filters, and helmets. Solutions in the field of nanotechnology are also used in elements reducing the fire risk and increasing the fire safety, such as building materials and structures, paints, coatings, or fire safety equipment (e.g., fire detectors). However, new solutions may also pose a threat to the safety of people and the environment. As a result of operation or combustion and degradation processes, the emission of nano-substances with toxic properties may occur. Therefore, knowledge in this field is necessary, as it allows for the appropriate targeting and use of nanotechnology. Full article

Air quality is one of the most important problems of the modern world, as it determines human health and changes occurring in other elements of nature, including climate change. For this reason, actions are taken to reduce the amount of harmful substances in the air. One such action is the use of building materials with special properties achieved by the application of self-cleaning coatings and photocatalytic additives. This article presents achievements in the field of additives and modifiers for building materials, whose task is to improve air quality. Concrete, cement, paints, and facade coatings modified based on the achievements of nanotechnology have been analyzed in terms of new properties and the possibility of their application in the area of modern environmental requirements. Both positive aspects and doubts were described in the scope of the effective reduction of the amount of gases such as VOC, NOx, dust and microorganisms. Full article
