Nanoparticle dispersion (surface-treated silica) to improve the scratch resistance of solvent-borne clear coatings which are used as automotive coatings, industrial coatings or wood and furniture coatings.


Coatings Industry

The additive provides the so-called “immediate reflow effect” due to the silica nanoparticles which are evenly distributed in the coating and which act like shock absorbers. They absorb the impacting energy and only release it very slowly. This results in an elastic coating surface with a consistent hardness. Mechanical impact leaves hardly any trace and the coating surface is virtually undamaged. It therefore provides perfect long-term protection.

Recommended Use
  • Industrial coatings
  • Wood and furniture coatings
  • Automotive refinish coatings
  • Automotive OEM coatings
