Four new fumed silicas from the AEROSIL® family are much easier to disperse. With these additives, formulators can omit the grinding step when incorporating them into paints or coatings. They are suitable for rheology control in both pigmented and clear coating formulations. Applications include wood, plastic, automotive and general industrial coatings. AEROSIL E 972 is more universally applicable, AEROSIL E 812 and AEROSIL E 805 are suitable for automotive OEM clear coats, and AEROSIL E 9200 is used primarily for special scratch resistance.
