Water-based coatings dry physically by absorption of the coating into the substrate as well as by the evaporation of water. When drying with hot air and infrared, the water is removed from the coating. The polymer particles approach each other and form the coating film.

Our water-based coatings are based on carefully selected raw materials. ACTEGA’s formulators have developed a comprehensive product portfolio for paper and board applications to meet the high quality and technical requirements of our customers.
