MICROTOUCH 800XXF

Highly resilient spherical polyurethane beads that can modify the tactile properties of formulated coatings and inks while improving burnish, scratch and mar resistance


FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Virtually indestructible elastic particles that distort when disturbed by a physical force and then return to their original spherical shape when the force is removed
  • Provide different tactile effects ranging from satiny smooth to rubbery to leathery in properly formulated coatings
  • Different particle sizes available to create a unique surface "touch"
  • Improves burnish and abrasion resistance
  • Effective gloss reduction

COMPOSITION

Spherical aliphatic polyurethane beads
