Solutions for Architectural Paints Celanese will also showcase its EcoVAE® line of vinyl acetate ethylene emulsions for use in ultra-low odor, low VOC (volatile organic compounds) decorative paints. “Celanese has a long history of assisting paint formulators with the difficult task of lowering VOCs while also reducing the unpleasant odor of interior paints, making a consumer-friendly product. Formulators appreciate that VAE emulsions are the best way to achieve their sales and marketing goals while reaching a high level of technical performance,” said Anna An, Asia commercial director for the Celanese emulsion polymers business. In addition, Celanese will be showing its VAE emulsions for use in waterproofing coatings, which are also low odor and low VOC. Solutions for Automotive Paints Celanese will highlight its Polysolvan® O solvent for use in automotive paints. Because of its very low volatility, Polysolvan O is used chiefly as a paint additive in the form of a highly effective flow agent.
