Aqueous acrylic binders are diffusions of polymer particles in water. These can be used as binders, coatings, or fillers in the production of various types of products including latexes and emulsions. They have excellent properties such as improved mechanical strength, improved chemical resistance, flexibility with low shrinkage rates, and good room temperature processability. These chemicals are used in the production and formulation of paints, adhesives, sealants, construction, and fiber-bonding materials, as well as in the paper and packaging industries.

Aqueous acrylic binders are also used to produce fiberglass and polyester mats that can be used in a variety of applications, such as roof tiles, plasterboard finishes, and HVAC systems. These chemicals are used in numerous vertical industries as raw materials for bonding, modifying, and refining materials and substrates. They form the basis for the manufacturing process of water-based paints, stains, and textured finishes. Lower VOC values are the main reason behind the shift in wood coatings from solvent-based to water-based systems.

Market Dynamics

Aqueous Acrylic Binders are proven to be beneficial for the construction industry

Aqueous acrylic binders are used to bond concrete in construction. In construction, aqueous acrylic binders are used in waterproofing grouts, wet room sealants, floor adhesives, and sealing compounds. They reduce the amount of water needed for mixing, which reduces shrinkage and cracking. Aqueous acrylic binders make it easier to shape floors with better wear resistance.

These binders tend to have high strength at elevated temperatures compared to other types of acrylate or methacrylate-based resin/adhesive systems, making them ideal for flooring applications requiring high performance over extended periods of time at elevated temperatures. Increasing urbanization and new concepts in housing and construction are expected to be the key drivers of the market.

Growing Applications of Aqueous Acrylic Binders in Various Other Industries

The textile industry is one of the major users of aqueous acrylic adhesives, which are used as binders for different types of fibers such as synthetic, glass, natural, or cellulose fibers. Growing demand for textiles for apparel and industrial use will require more aqueous acrylic binders for the manufacturing process.

The paper industry uses aqueous acrylic binders to achieve varnished print quality. They impart very good printability, durability, low odor, and high whiteness to the product, improving the appearance and performance of the finished paper and board.

Growing online commerce is expected to positively impact the demand for aqueous acrylic binders for high-performance packaging to protect ordered goods from wear and tear due to shipping. The use of aqueous acrylic binders will be one of the key factors driving innovation in the coatings market to reduce the environmental impact of coating systems and the reduction of HAPs, VOCs, and hazardous chemicals.
