Web Seminars for Performance and Formulation Additives, 4th Series 2020
Welcome to the next series of our web seminars for performance and formulation additives. We look forward to getting back in touch with you after the summer break.
Topics covered this time include our dispersion toolbox, which enables label-free universal pigment concentrates, and Rheovis PU 1340, our highly efficient Newtonian PU thickener for flat to high-gloss coatings in the areas of architectural coatings. In addition, we deal with light stabilizers due to several requests. We present Tinuvin 5866 – the optimal solution for a wide range of applications, typically sealants that heat up in the sun – and Tinuvin 533-DW for joinery, wood and other industrial coatings that require UV-A and UV-B protection.
Let`s turn challenges into opportunities by intensifying the technical dialogue
The additives business is by nature one that thrives through customer intimacy. Our prime objective across all the industries we serve is to help turn the specific challenges that each customer faces into opportunities.
Looking at our latest developments, we are happy to offer you the flexibility of a dispersing agent that is suitable for a broad application range and achieves top results with both inorganic and organic pigments. Furthermore, we have recently launched Joncryl® 9530, a new straight acrylic dispersion which brings out the beauty of wood surfaces. You can read more about these and other products in this newsletter.
White coated furniture is increasingly popular, especially in living and kitchen areas. However, in everyday life small mishaps can happen quickly: a spilled coffee or a carelessly thrown key can leave irreversible traces on bright surfaces. With Joncryl® 9500 and 9502 and Laromer® UA 9135 Aqua, we provide you with the right solution.
Acronal® PRO acrylic-modified emulsions are one step closer to the replacement of solvent-based systems. Our APEO and zinc-free acrylic dispersion Acronal® PRO 770 for improved metal protection helps you to save formulation cost.
Breaking new ground in coating surface modification
To cover the latest needs of the coatings industry, we have enhanced our Formulation Additives portfolio with a novel concept of coating surface modification. It is based on fluoro-modified block copolymers that cross-link with the binder matrix.
In recent years, water-based coatings have gained in popularity among professionals and consumers alike as they offer a high-quality, environmentally friendly alternative to solvent-based products. By replacing solvents with water as a liquefying agent, these eco-friendly coatings are low odor, easy cleaning and have low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.
Wanting a resource efficient and environmentally-friendly finish? Our latest highly reactive UV resins are specially designed to meet the major challenges of UV coatings for the Furniture and Flooring industry.
Striving to comply with today’s emission limits? Our new synergistic combination, Efka® FA 4611 and Laropal® A-8L, reduces volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in pigment concentrates. And that’s not all…
