An ambient dry water dispersed coating composition substantially free of volatile organic coalescing solvents, the coating composition containing a polymer film forming binder comprises between 40% and 50% copolymerized non-conjugated, unsaturated fatty acid triglyceride, between 40% and 55% copolymerized ethylenic monomer including styrene, and between 3% and 12% copolymerized maleic anhydride. The film forming copolymer is produced by first reacting maleic anhydride with the fatty acid triglyceride at high temperatures between 140.degree. C. to form a maleinized triglyceride having a pendent maleic anhydride structure. The maleinized triglyceride is then styrenated at temperatures between about 80.degree. C. and 200.degree. C. in the presence of at least 4% peroxide initiator based on the weight of monomers copolymerized to form a styrenated, maleinized fatty acid triglyceride copolymer having anhydride groups. The anhydride groups are neutralized with amine or ammonia and the neutralized copolymer is dispersed in water.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
