Additives

Crystalline precipitated calcium carbonate nanoparticles for tailored surface modification. Used as a partial replacement of TiO2, maintaining opacity and hiding power while offering improved rheology. High transparency and gloss. Can be used as a functional filler, opacifier, or thixotropic agent.

Adhesion Promoters

Chlorinated polypropylene adhesion promoter used on TPO substrates without surface treatment. Soluble in aromatic solvents, water, and reactive diluents (UV cure). Used for tough and transparent coatings.

Mono- and multi-functional aliphatic epoxy crosslinkers, reactive diluents, and modifiers. Grades include high functionality, varying degrees of water solubility, low chlorine content, hydroxyl functionality, and bio-based content. Low viscosity and non yellowing. Provides good adhesion to metal and nylon substrates.

Epoxy-terminated polybutadiene compounds with high flexibility, toughness, and elasticity. Includes a low viscosity, low molecular weight grade.

Waterborne crosslinkers with various Tg’s. Improved moisture resistance, heat resistance, drying time, film properties, and adhesion to substrates, such as polyester. Available in emulsion, solution, or granule form for compounding into thermoplastics. Combines fast cure with long pot-life at room temperature.

Maleic anhydride-grafted polyolefin resins with low impurities for interlayer adhesion (plastic to plastic or plastic to metal). Used as a coupling agent, compatibilizer, and in hot melt applications. Available in pellets, sheets, or powder.

Ceramics

Core-Shell Impact Modifiers

Functionalized Core-Shell Microparticles

Impact modifier for thermoplastics and toughener for thermosets, epoxies, UPEs, powder coatings and UV-curable coatings.

Light Diffusion

Crosslinked silicone (PMSQ) microspheres with a consistent spherical shape and narrow particle distribution. Superior heat resistance with a lower refractive index for more efficient light diffusion.

Crosslinked acrylic and styrenic microspheres. Suited for waterborne and solvent-borne systems. Excellent dispersability in paint formulations. Excellent compatibility with coated film. Durable matte or soft-feel coating, which has superior scratch and mar resistance.

Matting and Tactile Agents

Crosslinked silicone (PMSQ) microspheres with a consistent spherical shape and narrow particle distribution. Superior heat resistance with a lower refractive index for more efficient light diffusion.

Crosslinked acrylic and styrenic microspheres. Suited for waterborne and solvent-borne systems. Excellent dispersability in paint formulations. Excellent compatibility with coated film. Durable matte or soft-feel coating, which has superior scratch and mar resistance.

Crosslinked polyurethane microspheres. More flexible than acrylic microparticles while offering a softer touch and better gloss control. Good solvent resistance.

Metallic and Effect Pigments

Reduced titanium oxide (TiOx)-coated mica and glass microparticles for a deeper pearlescent black compared to traditional mica-and glass-based pigments. Good dispersability, stability in water, as well as heat and chemical resistance.

Pigment dispersions with high optical transparency providing visibilty of the underlying properties of substrates, such as metallized surfaces. Stable dispersions in a range of colors, solvents, and carrier resins.

Microscopic aluminum flakes finely dispersed in an organic-solvent or aqueous-based carrier. Available in a variety of metallic effects and colors. Resin-coated grades for greater weatherability/chemical resistance and design grades for tighter particle size distribution.

Resins

Mono- and multi-functional aliphatic epoxy crosslinkers, reactive diluents, and modifiers. Grades include high functionality, varying degrees of water solubility, low chlorine content, hydroxyl functionality, and bio-based content. Low viscosity and non yellowing.

Hydroxy-functional epoxy acrylates and methacrylates for UV/EB-curable ink, coating, and adhesive applications.

Multifunctional acrylated or epoxidized silsesquioxane with ladder-type or random structures. High transparency, high heat resistance, and high UV resistance. High refractive index grade available.

Epoxy-terminated polybutadiene compounds with high flexibility, toughness, and elasticity. Includes a low viscosity, low molecular weight grade.

Low Tg functionalized aliphatic acrylic esters. Low impurities, low residual monomer content, high molecular weight with narrow weight distribution. Three possible functional groups (COOH, OH, epoxy). Provides flexibililty, tack, cohesion, and peel strength.

Mono- and multi-functional cycloaliphatic epoxies. Grades include low viscosity, good transparency, high heat resistance, high Tg, and good electrical properties. Non-yellowing with high flexibility and toughness. Suitable for thermal cure or UV cure (cationic).

Smart Coatings
