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
