Visitors to the booths of two Dow Corning distributors – Univar (Booth #811) and Nexeo Solutions (Booth #217) – will learn about innovativeDow Corning®brand additives and resins, and how they can help create paint and ink formulations with differentiated performance, even on difficult substrates and in challenging formulations.

The Dow Corning® family of superwetter additives for waterborne and radiation-cured paints, inks and coatings includes a range of products for cost-effective, optimum performance with good recoatability and no impact on slip, even on challenging substrates like wood, plastics and metal.

Dow Corning® slip and leveling additives for solventborne and radiation-cured paints, inks and coatings includes several products that enable the design of tailored flow and leveling solutions for use on wood, furniture and plastic substrates without worrying about foam stabilization or recoatability.

Dow Corning® 100F Additive, for use in solvent-based, high-solids, solventless and radiation-curable coatings, is a fluorosilicone that is effective at very low use levels and does not affect surface appearance or recoatability, even after long-term storage.

Dow Corning® 87 Additive and 88 Additive for acrylic emulsion and solventbornedecorative coating formulations provide improved water resistance at very low use levels, even on wood, masonry and other porous substrates, without affecting water vapor permeability or recoatability.

Coming soon is Dow Corning® 3055 Resin, designed for use in next-generation polysiloxane topcoats. Formulations based on epoxy resins crosslinked with this new isocyanate- and HAPS-free, high-solids amino silicone resin show improved thermal stability, gloss and water resistance.
