MICROSPERSION® 22AQ-50

A nonionic water based dispersion of ultrafine oxidized polyethylene for gloss reduction of paints and industrial coatings, and as an additive in seed coatings


FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Convenient, ready-to-use, pourable nonionic wax dispersion
  • Provides uniform gloss reduction with good clarity and 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
  • In seed coatings, improves anti-blocking, flow, and abrasion resistance
  • Formulated for 40CFR Part 180 compliance for both food and non-food use
