On Demand The satisfaction that results from identifying a successful defoamer in the lab often comes to a screeching halt when a formula is moved into production. Unfortunately, what works in the lab doesn’t always make a seamless transition into the plant. What if we told you that simple adjustments to the incorporation conditions could be all that’s required?
On Demand This webinar will discuss the different chemistries of fluorosurfactants and other additives and how this affects their performance in coatings. Fluorosurfactants are multifunctional and direct one-for-one replacement is rarely possible, but careful selection of additive combinations can achieve comparable performance in different coatings formulations.
On Demand In this webinar, we will demonstrate how silane and silicone technologies can modify polyaspartic chemistries to increase performance characteristics of traditional metal coating finishes. In particular, we will highlight technical capabilities of glycolic silane technology that can enable coating system formulations to be virtually free of latent alcohol or other VOC emissions.
On Demand In-can stability, application, durability, and overall performance are all dependent on a coating’s rheology profile, and with continued focus on more environmentally friendly formulations, yesterday’s solutions don’t always provide formulators with the right tools for the job.
On Demand With the increasing regulatory & environmental requirements and the growing expectations of end users, the development of a high-performance water-borne coating system has become a challenge. Silicones have long been used to improve weatherability, water resistance and mar resistance, but the incorporation of silicone materials into waterborne organic resin compositions is often difficult due to fundamental incompatibility and immiscibility.
On Demand Superior scratch and stain resistance are challenging properties to impart into a cost effective, environmentally responsible UV coating. The inherently high viscosity and rapid cure times negatively impact a coating’s ability to flow and level onto the substrate, resulting in suboptimal durability and finish quality.
On Demand Cabot’s highly dispersible carbon black (HDCB) is a new SoftbeadTM colorant designed to reduce or completely eliminate the need for milling and dispersant use in waterborne systems. Our SoftBead technology significantly reduces dusting during the formulation process and allows for easy dispersion.
