Breaking new ground in coating surface modification

450646701

Are you facing diverse challenges resulting from ever-changing overall conditions, such as new consumer requirements and stricter environmental standards? Or do you require products that combine aesthetics with additional coating functionalities, such as improved durability, reduced dirt pickup, and easy-to-clean features?

If so, be assured: We have you covered. 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. The block copolymers align at the top surface layers via self-organization and are fixed in the right place, which leads to improved durability and weathering resistance of the surface, as well as additional functionalities such as an easy-to-clean effect. The new concept is suitable for various types of applications such as automotive clear coats or industrial topcoats. 

With this, we help you to improve the efficiency, durability, and appearance of your products.
