ADDSiL™ 8323 is an aralkyl-modified polymethylalkylsiloxane, it is for solvent-borne coating systems with a slight reduction of surface tension and slight increase of surface slip. Thermostable up to 250°C. It can provide good leveling with defoaming properties.
Color and Appearance
Transparent to slight yellowish clear liquid
ADDSiL™ 8323 silicone leveling agent provides a slight reduction of the surface tension of coating systems.
ADDSiL™ 8323 is a silicone leveling additive which has a defoaming effect/does not stabilize or only slightly stabilizes the foam depending on the polarity of the coating system.
ADDSiL™ 8323 is thermostable up to 250°C and does not negatively impact the intercoat adhesion.
In matt coatings ADDSiL™ 8323 is used to orientate the matting agent.
In wood and furniture silicone coatings, ADDSiL™ 8323 is used to orient the flatting agent in flat topcoats and in multi-coat systems. Even in difficult to flat high-solids coating systems,such as polyurethane, acid curing and unsaturated polyester coatings, its usage does not lead to shining up. In addition, optimal orientation of the flatting agent is achieved.
In flow coatings, ADDSiL™ 8323 stabilizes the flow curtain, and in metallic coatings it ensures consistent orientation of the aluminum pigments.
ADDSiL™ 8323 by SiSiB can prevent Bénard cell formation.
ADDSiL™ 8323 can increase the smoothness of the surface, therfore it improves the scratch resistance and abrasion resistance.
ADDSiL™ 8323 is supplied in 25Kg / 200Kg plastic drum or steel drum or according to customer's request.
In the original unopened packaging, ADDSiL™ 8323 has a shelf life of 24 months.
