With the popularization of environmental protection concepts, water-based coatings have been recognized by more and more consumers as environmentally friendly products. Industry experts said that it is hoped that the coatings companies will conduct in-depth research and development, make breakthroughs in product quality and expand the market with the help of environmental protection.
For a long time, home decoration coatings have attracted wide attention from consumers due to their close relationship with home life and environment. For a long time, oil-based paints have been used as the main coating products for home decoration with their rich colors. But in recent years, more and more evidence has shown that traditional oil-based coatings affect people's health to a certain extent. Therefore, environmentally friendly coatings are increasingly favored by consumers.
Water-based coatings are recognized by more and more consumers as environmentally friendly products. However, due to the influence of many factors such as price and decorative effect, water-based coatings have not yet become mainstream products in the market, and consumers' awareness of water-based coatings needs to be improved.
At present, according to incomplete statistics, the use rate of water-based paints in China is less than 10%, and the market presents a pattern of “industry hot market cold”.
Although waterborne coatings are beginning to be accepted and recognized by more consumers, they are still the world of oily coatings for the larger middle and lower consumer markets.
Professionals said that the biggest advantage of water-based coatings is environmental protection, but because the coating effect of most domestic water-based coatings can not fully achieve the same effect as traditional coatings, and the coating process of water-based coatings is greatly affected by the construction environment. The construction period is longer. Therefore, it is difficult for water-based paints to truly occupy the market. Coatings companies should produce products that adapt to different environments. If the product quality is not upgraded, water-based coatings are difficult to be widely accepted by the market.
However, the industry is optimistic about the future prospects of waterborne coatings. The characteristics of water-based paints, such as health and environmental protection, have clearly shown an increasing trend in the sales market in recent years. The market prospect of waterborne coatings is huge. For many domestic coatings companies, it is an important measure to increase research and development, break through technical bottlenecks, and continuously improve and enhance their performance. At the same time, the promotion of sales terminals and the cultivation of market demand are essential. In addition to paying attention to the quality and health indicators of the products, the paint companies must pay more attention to the cultivation of the consumer market. Professionals believe that the industrialization of products needs to be promoted by various enterprises. On the one hand, it requires the attention and support of relevant departments. On the other hand, enterprises need to reach consensus with home improvement companies, and at the same time, they must popularize the knowledge of water-based coatings to consumers. Product advantages.
Domestic coatings companies have launched water-based coatings in recent years, and have made technological breakthroughs in product development.
For the coatings industry, one of the most important means to reduce VOC emissions is the water-based coating. At present, the water-based proportion of interior decorative coatings, furniture coatings, anti-corrosion coatings and automotive coatings is gradually increasing. At present, the state has formulated a number of national standards such as GB 18582-2008 "Limits of harmful substances in interior wall decoration materials for interior decoration materials" and GB 24410-2009 "Limited substances in water-based wood coatings for interior decoration materials". Ensure the healthy and orderly development of the waterborne coatings industry. However, to truly realize the industrialization of water-based coatings is not the efforts of several companies, but it is not easy to achieve in the short term, but requires the joint efforts of the entire industry.
