This company, a business unit of Arkema Inc., has introduced Synaqua® 4804 waterborne alkyd. This new binder is an APEO and ammonia-free short oil alkyd emulsion designed for use in a variety of coatings in which performance similar to solvent-based alkyds is desired. It reportedly offers a low-VOC option to develop high-gloss products with the application feel of a solvent-based alkyd. 

The binder reportedly offers high-gloss potential and excellent gloss retention, good hardness, a quick dry time, low yellowing, and stability with anticorrosive pigments.
