A bulk polymerization process for the preparation of modified polymeric products is disclosed including charging continuously into a reaction zone at least one ethylenically unsaturated acid-functional monomer and optionally at least one alkanol having the formula ROH, where R is a linear or branched chain alkyl moiety having at least 4 carbon atoms. The process also includes modification of the polymeric product by incorporation of an amine with greater than 4 carbon atoms. The modified polymeric products can be used in a number of water-based compositions including overprint varnishes, inks, coatings, adhesives, floor polishes, paints, barrier coatings, primers, coil coatings, wax dispersions, oil dispersions, wax emulsions, oil emulsions, functional paper coatings, foil coatings, paper sizing agents, and pigment dispersions.
