Abstract: Abstract A new manufacturing process of high performance, waterborne coatings for can coating applications is developed, which includes emulsification of an epoxy resin with or without its hardener by incorporation of an acrylic resin. It becomes possible by this new process to emulsify a variety of resins with minimum effects of the surfactant acrylic resin. Thus, latitude to design formulations is widened and the performance of epoxy resin and its hardener can be fully developed.
