A water emulsion alkyd based paint was developed which is comparable to military formula 12458 solvent based paint in the relevant aspects of military specification MIL-E-17970C and related aspects of Federal Test Method Standard No. 141. The water based paint is superior to the present solvent based system from the standpoint of non-flammability, lack of odor, and absence of toxic fumes. The paint is made by emulsifying a benzene solution of chlorinated alkyd resin and driers. Then, by vacuum distillation, the benzene is removed, leaving behind a dispersion of very fine particles in water. This dispersion is then mixed with an aqueous pigment dispersion to produce the finished paint.
