Silicone coating additives including wetting agent, leveling agent, release agent, defoaming agent and anti-graffiti additives are widely used in producing paints, coatings, printing inks, primers, powder, overprint varnishes and etc. As silicones are effective at low concentration levels, they are widely used to optimize product performance, processing operations and productivity.
Wetting and dispersing agents are used to wet and stabilize pigments and other particles in silicone wall paint, coating and ink formulations. Wetting and dispersing agents are an important part of a coating formulation because they can improve color strength, gloss, and viscosity stability. Wetting and dispersing agents prevent pigments from floating, flooding and settling, keeping color coverage and intensity consistent during storage. They help the pigment concentration can be maximized during dispersion.
Due to the low viscosity of wetting and dispersing additives, they can help to produce coatings and pigment concentrates cost-effectively.
SiSiB wetting agents are dedicated to providing formulation with sufficient wetting properties, enhance the compatibility of different components and improve the appearance of the coating surface. SiSiB substrate wetting agent (short chain polyether siloxanes) are used primarily to reduce surface tension in waterborne coatings. Longer chain polyether siloxanes are better in in solvent borne and UV coatings.
SiSiB team would assist to ensure compatibility between additives and coating systems to achieve combination of required properties.
