MUMBAI, India , January 7, 2013 () – Intellectual Property India has published a patent application (2235/MUM/2012 A) filed by Asian Paints Ltd., Maharashtra on Aug. 3, 2012 for a 'synergistic emulsion polymer formulation and aqueous coating / paint compositions involving the same.'

The application for the patent - which was invented by Vattipalli Mohan Rao, Vibha Tiwari and Avishek Mitra - was published on Dec. 14, 2012 under issue no. 50/2012.

According to the abstract released by the Intellectual Property India: "A synergistic emulsion polymer formulation adapted for facilitating achieving desired open time or wet edge time of any aqueous coating/ paint composition on application to thus result in improved workability of said paint/ coating compositions. Said synergistic emulsion polymer formulation and coating/ paint composition comprising the same comprises a latex polymer derived from copolymerization of mono-ethylenically unsaturated monomers which in combination with select sorbitol ethoxylates esterified with fatty acids as an ingredient in the formulation/ composition favours slowing down of water evaporation from said composition considerably so that it remains amenable to touch up even after several minutes of application."
