Revolutionary bio-based additives for wood coatings

15 June 2015

Clariant has introduced innovative solutions for wood coatings based on renewable sources, that can protect effectively against surface damage and meet the demand for more sustainable coating systems.
Ceridust 8090 TP and Ceridust 8091 TP are based on Polysaccharide from renewable sources not in conflict with food. They carry Clariant’s EcoTain label, which identifies Clariant’s flagship products and solutions that offer outstanding sustainability advantages and exceed market standards.
Both Ceridust solutions offer wood coating producers a step-change in performance from a bio-based wood coating additive. In addition Ceridust outperforms in terms of scratch resistance and higher coefficient of friction compared to standard waxes. Ceridust solutions are offered in different particle size distributions to provide a variety of surface properties, from a silky touch to natural wooden haptic effect.
Ceridust 8090 TP – the coarser version (30µm) of this additive for wood coatings creates a protected and smooth surface with the pleasant feel of untreated wood. The micronised polymer increases coefficient of friction in combination with outstanding scratch resistance performance in water-based formulations.
Ceridust 8091 TP – the fine grind (8µm) of the renewable-based micronised polymer combines smoothness with very high scratch resistance. The high matting efficiency, together with these properties, enables the manufacturer to formulate more sustainable coatings with top quality.
