Nanotechnology Products
NANOBYK-3600 is a waterborne dispersion of nano-alumina particles. At levels of 0.5% to 5% being applied to waterborne (UV) coatings, it significantly improves the scratch resistance of those coatings. NANOBYK-3601 is a dispersion of nano-alumina in Tripropylene Glycol Diacrylate (TPGDA), developed for 100% UV-curable coatings. Again, by adding 0.5% to 5% to the coating formulation, mechanical properties of the coatings are improved significantly. BYK-Chemie and Nanophase Technology Corp. (NTC) have developed these products jointly. E-mail

Anticorrosive Pigments
ZAM Plus and ZCP Plus are chrome-free anticorrosives for widespread application in both conventional and modern resin systems. These anticorrosives are designed to perform well across various coating types. Heucophos ZAM Plus is an organic-modified zinc aluminum molybdenum orthophosphate hydrate. Heucophos ZCP Plus is a zinc calcium strontium aluminum orthophosphate silicate hydrate. This is the first inorganic inhibitor that has been tailored to synergistically interact with an organic corrosion inhibitor, Heucorin RZ. E-mail

Floor-Finish Polymer
Interpolymer Corp.
Company introduces its new polymer for high-solids durable floor finishes with superior scuff and scratch resistance. Megatran® 233 produces very durable floor-finish formulations that feature excellent gloss characteristics and require very little maintenance. Megatran 233 formulations perform well over a wide range of temperatures and humidities, even if the application instructions are not followed strictly. Call 781/828.7120.

Flame Retardants
Exolit® non-halogenated flame-retardant systems are suitable for many applications. These products guarantee optimal fire protection while taking into consideration ecological and toxicological effects. The flame-retardant systems are tailored to the individual application in close cooperation with the customer. This approach has two major benefits - the Exolit system is always perfectly fitted to the requirements of the customers, and the range of products is being constantly improved and optimized in view of the increasing safety regulations.
