PROPYLMATTE 500

Finely micronized polypropylene for consistent matting and gloss control in paints, inks and industrial coatings


FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Provides uniform gloss reduction with good clarity, a smoother surface feel, and no viscosity effects when compared to silica additives
  • Tough, high molecular weight polymer imparts superior burnish and abrasion resistance vs. silica
  • Does not lower COF; ideal for non-skid surfaces
  • In powder coatings, lowers gloss, reduces slip, and functions as a highly effective degassing agent vs. benzoin
  • Eliminates powder coating pinholes and improves surface adhesion when overcoating or using silicone sealants
  • Adds texture in low bake (Low E) powder coatings

COMPOSITION
