Dow Corning 52 for abrasion resistance

13 June 2014

With Dow Corning 52 Additive formulators now have the unique capability of fine-tuning a wide array of properties – from slip to scratch resistance and more. Controlling slip, while improving scratch and abrasion resistance and without negatively affecting other important coating benefits, has been difficult to accomplish up to now.
This additive is an ultra-high molecular weight silicone dispersion engineered to use in industrial waterborne wood coatings, wood trim, inks, overprint varnishes and interior/exterior paints. It is easily incorporated during let-down and post-addition production stages at very low levels, allowing good cost-in-use benefits to be achieved.
