Nanoparticle dispersion (zinc oxide) for long-term UV protection in aqueous systems.


Coatings Industry

The zinc oxide nanoparticles dispersed in this additive provide long-term UV protection. This improves the protection of the film and substrate without having a significant impact on optical properties such as gloss, coloring, transparency and other physical properties. Use in combination with organic radical scavengers (HALS) is recommended.

Recommended Use

The additive is particularly recommended for aqueous wood and furniture coatings and architectural coatings (wood care) for transparent systems.
