Replacing Solvents in Industrial Coatings with Solubility Parameters

This is a Past Course

Recorded on Oct 17, 2018

Meet your regulatory & safety requirements faster (low toxicity, VOC, flammability...) by understanding how to replace existing solvents and select greener alternatives.

François Magnin will share science-based predictive tools using Hansen Solubility Parameters (HSP) for quicker solvent selection. He will also present in details, examples and the key factors to consider (solubility volume, solvent evaporation profile…).

Why should you view this course?

Growing concerns around ecotoxicological profiles of many commonly used solvents in industrial coatings & the advent of newer resins require you to find and work with new & greener alternatives. And, lowering system costs is an added pressure! But, switching from one solvent to another is not easy… Save time & effort by joining this course!

  • Size up your choice of alternative solvents based on a finer understanding of Hansen Solubility Parameters (solubility volume, solvent evaporation profile…)

  • Replace existing solvents and/or blends to meet your needs (cost considerations, new resin chemistries…) by understanding how to use pre-lab tools

  • Meet both regulation & safety requirements (low toxicity, VOC…) with very practical tips for solvent replacement with greener alternatives.
