Designed for demanding outdoor coating applications, AdNano fumed zinc oxide is made to increase the lifetime of outdoor coatings by providing effective stability at high temperatures and long-life protection. Its unique properties include excellent dispersion capability and transparency. It is designed to enable coatings formulators to improve the overall appearance and performance of their finished coatings. The highly accessible surface area of it opens up the possibility for a number of other applications, including corrosion protection for coatings. In some instances, it will be possible to reduce the quantity of zinc oxide used by substituting AdNano fumed zinc oxide for non-fumed grades of zinc oxide. Two grades will be offered: VP AdNano ZnO 20 (hydrophilic version) and VP AdNano Z805 (silanized hydrophobic version). Samples of both are available for qualification.
