ENCOR® 636 Acrylic Binder

Multi-purpose binder for low voc, sustainable architectural formulations.

ENCOR® 636 100% acrylic latex provides a good balance of properties for both interior and exterior formulations compared to our typical acrylic binders. The binder meets the requirements of Arkema’s EnVia® certification program1, and is low VOC-capable, making it suitable for flat to gloss formulations that satisfy both performance and sustainable formulating requirements.

Performance benefits

  • APEO-Free – ENCOR® 636 acrylic latex meets EnVia® standards, including no use of APEO surfactants.
  • Delivers excellent gloss development, adhesion on both wet and dry substrates and grain crack resistance, making it suitable for both interior and exterior formulations.
  • Formulations based on ENCOR® 636 acrylic latex show excellent rheology, stability and color acceptance.
  • Offers an excellent balance of cost and performance in a low VOC-capable binder.
