MICROSPERSION® 31AQ-50

A nonionic water based dispersion of finely micronized oxidized high density oxidized polyethylene for gloss reduction of paints and industrial coatings


FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Convenient, ready-to-use, pourable nonionic wax dispersion
  • 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

COMPOSITION

Nonionic wax dispersion

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).
