Abstract The present study describes the preparation of Vinyl acetate-Butylacrylate copolymer lattices of varying compositions and solid contents bysemicontinuous emulsion polymerization method. This copolymer lattices wereused as binder to develop a new surface coating formulation. The properties ofthis surface coating were improved by using nano TiO2 colloidal sol as apigment. Antimicrobial activity of surface coatings was improved by theaddition of carboxymethyl chitosan as biocide. Uniformly dispersed tyre crumbwas used to give a mat finish to the coating. The mechanical properties adhesiveproperties, thermal properties etc. of the coatings are presented in thesis.
