PROPYLTEX® 230HD

Medium particle size grade of densified micronized polypropylene for adding consistent surface texture and structure with excellent in-can stability in water based paints and coatings


FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Provides gloss reduction with improved burnish resistance vs. silica
  • Particle density optimized to essentially eliminate flotation or settling in water based systems
  • Adds a mild to medium texture to the coating surface
  • Tough, high molecular weight polypropylene gives good durability
  • Does not lower COF; ideal for non-skid surfaces

COMPOSITION

Densified polypropylene

SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS

Water based and energy curable industrial coatings including metal, plastic, leather and masonry, architectural wall and trim paints; stains, sealers and varnishes; wood coatings; floor coatings.
