AQUAMATTE® 31

Fine micronized oxidized high density polyethylene for gloss reduction of paints and industrial coatings. Also useful as an additive in seed coatings.


FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Provides uniform gloss reduction with a smoother surface feel when compared to silica additives
  • Tough, high molecular weight polymer imparts burnish and abrasion resistance
  • High density polymer provides maximum in-can stability with minimal flotation in water based systems
  • Ideal for water based systems
  • In seed coatings, improves anti-blocking, flow, and abrasion resistance

COMPOSITION

Oxidized polyethylene

SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS

Water based coatings. Industrial coatings (including plastic, metal, masonry and leather) architectural wall and trim paints; stains, sealers and varnishes; wood coatings; printing inks and OPV's (including flexo and gravure). Seed coatings.
