Solve compatibility issues with slip and mar, anti-blocking and foam control additives
Recorded on December 8, 2020, presented by Dow
The most sustainable re-coat is the one you don’t need. We have introduced three silicone additives that help coating formulators combine key performances required to protect and preserve the aesthetics of wood over a longer time, while meeting increasingly stringent regulatory requirements.
As consumers continue to vote in wood as a sustainable, comfortable and aesthetic material for construction, furniture and interiors, the demand for innovative, high-performance and sustainable wood coating formulations continues to grow around the world.
Silicone-based additives are a special class of materials that can impart many protective and tactile properties to a coating at a low dosage level. These class of materials have shown to improve flow and leveling in architectural coatings as well as slip. Silicones tends to orient at the air-coating interface forming a lubricating layer resulting in the reduction of coefficient of friction which gives the final coating anti-scratch and desirable tactile properties. Silicone based defoamers provide improved compatibility with optimal performance at low dosage in water and solvent borne coatings.
During this webinar, we will introduce three new additives specially dedicated to enhancing painted surfaces without compromising on the appearance:
- DOWSIL™ 211S Additive is a novel low-cyclic slip additive that delivers ultra-high molecular weight silicone into waterborne systems to enhance mar resistance, slip and block resistance performance combined with an exceptional compatibility in most paints.
- DOWSIL™ 107F Additive is a versatile silicone foam control agent with high effectiveness in waterborne acrylic clear wood coating varnishes, and acrylic, styrene acrylic and VAE emulsion paint for architectural wall coatings.
- DOWSIL™ 402LS Additive is a silicone additive which reduces the coefficient of friction of wood coatings and provides blocking resistance up to 40°C, while improving the flow and levelling properties for the formulation.
