The new rheological additive (RA) produces strong initial anti-sag results, even under these very low-energy mixing conditions with no added heat. The stability following accelerated aging is also greatly improved relative to the commercial RAs. The new RA activates quickly and does not require a lengthy heat up period during paint or adhesive manufacturing.
Our March issue features a new eco-friendly carbon black, a fast-dry DTM alkyd emulsion with excellent corrosion resistance, and information on evaluating the flow behavior of coatings. March is also our European Coatings Show issue, which pre-show coverage and Exhibits-in-Print.
