    Abstract

    Conventional organic solvent coating systems are a major concern in terms of safety, health and the environment and are therefore being replaced by waterborne coating systems. In the formulation of waterborne coating systems, surfactants play an important role, especially during the latex preparation where they influence particle nucleation and stabilization in emulsion polymerization. However, after application of the waterborne coating system on a substrate, the role of the surfactant becomes redundant.
