Industrial coatings perform a wide variety of functions in different applications and contribute to decoration as well. The polymeric binder as the backbone of such coating formulations plays a decisive role. Whether it is the protection of metal against corrosion or the weather resistance of wood: with our water-based polymer technologies, we offer reliable and at the same time environmentally conscious solutions for a wide variety of problems and substrates. Our portfolio includes products based on both anionic and cationic waterborne acrylate or polyurethane dispersions for paper, wood, metal, concrete and plastics.


The graphic arts sector combines advertising, publication and packaging printing, with a wide variety of printing processes. Diverse printing technologies and application types as well as a large number of different substrates require highly specialised polymers for the formulation of suitable coating and ink systems. In addition to economic aspects, sustainability and environmental friendliness are increasingly becoming the focus of raw material selection. Water-based polymer technologies, in which Zschimmer & Schwarz specialises, are the method of choice here. With decades of experience, we supply the graphic arts industry with high-performance acrylic emulsions. Our extensive portfolio serves end uses ranging from printing inks to overprint varnishes and primers for paper, board, cardboard, metallised papers or labels.
