The development of the Silikopur 8080 dispersion shows benefit in a number of different applications such as wood, leather and plastics.
Manufacturers and consumers place increasingly stringent demands on both the appearance and functional properties of surfaces. Often, these demands cannot be met by the material alone; rather, the manufacturers turn to innovative and functional coatings to offer the solution. Surfaces such as wood, metal, ceramic, leather and plastics require coatings that give a variety of protective and decorative properties. Besides the aesthetic aspect, these coatings may need to impart corrosion resistance, scratch and mar resistance, clarity, gloss, UV and weathering stability, chemical resistance, nonstick or easy cleaning, and even soft feel properties.
