Waterborne colloidal films are used in a wide range of everyday applications, such as adhesives, inks, pharmaceutical coatings, agricultural treatments, paints and varnishes. For some applications, it is advantageous for a film’s top surface to have a structure and properties that differ from the underlayers.

Waterborne colloidal films are used in a wide range of everyday applications, such as adhesives, inks, pharmaceutical coatings, agricultural treatments, paints and varnishes. For some applications, it is advantageous for a film’s top surface to have a structure and properties that differ from the underlayers. For instance, hard particles at the top of a coating will increase the mar resistance, and hydrophilic particles will increase the wettability. We have discovered how to create self-stratifying layers of particles during film formation. I will explain how the particle sizes, viscosity, drying conditions and thickness can be selected to design the targeted structure and properties.
