Medium particle size grade of micronized polypropylene for adding consistent texture and structure to a wide variety of paints and coatings


FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Provides gloss reduction with improved burnish resistance vs. silica
  • Adds a medium texture effect to the coating surface
  • Tough, high molecular weight polypropylene gives good durability
  • Does not lower COF; ideal for anti-skid surfaces
  • Narrow cut mean particle size grades available for maximum texture control
  • Adds texture in low bake (Low E) powder coatings

COMPOSITION

Polypropylene

RECOMMENDED ADDITION LEVELS

2.0 - 5.0% depending on the level of gloss reduction desired

SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS
