New SNAP® 728 acrylic latex delivers high performance and wider formulating latitude compared to SNAP® 720 binder.
SNAP® 728 is a structured nano-acrylic polymer for satin to high gloss sheen coatings applications. This 100% acrylic latex features excellent gloss and adhesion and is EnVia® certified.
SNAP® technology provides outstanding block resistance and exceptional film hardness at no or low VOC. Due to its ammonia-free composition, SNAP® 728 is an excellent choice for systems where odor of the finished product is a concern.

Figure 1: Block resistance
Using the supplied starting point formulation, coatings based on SNAP® 728 latex display comparable or improved block resistance compared to commercially available binders.
Figure 2: Block resistance with high colorant loadings
Testing shows coatings based on SNAP® 728 binder maintain excellent block resistance when tinted with 14 oz of B NovoColor II Zero VOC Colorant.
Figure 3: High gloss at low or zero VOC
SNAP® 728 latex enables the formulation of high gloss, low VOC coatings with comparable performance to competitive products containing significantly higher VOC levels.
Figure 4: Industry-leading print resistance
Commercially available latexes often trade off hardness to achieve zero VOC film formation. Coatings based on Snap® 728 binder resist deformation when tested for print resistance, making SNAP® 728 acrylic polymer an excellent choice for coatings applications for built-in shelving and other horizontal surfaces.
Figure 5: Adhesion
Coatings based on SNAP® 728 latex display excellent adhesion properties, including over difficult substrates.
Figure 6: Scrub resistance
Coatings based on SNAP® 728 latex display improved scrub resistance compared to SNAP® 720 structured nano-acrylic binder as well as competitive binders.
