Lubrizol offers PowerAdd 9080

December 20, 2007

Lubrizol Advanced Materials, Inc. has launched PowerAdd 9080 structuring additive for hammertone finishes. Using PowerAdd 9080 additive, formulators of industrial powder coatings, including polyester-TGC, polyester/epoxy hybrids, polyester/primids or urethanes, can achieve uniform, reproducible hammertone finishes. It works across a variety of pigmentations and can be used to create a hammertone effect with metallic and non-metallic pigments. Effective at low addition rates, PowerAdd 9080 additive produces a coarse structure in powder coatings when added between 0.2-0.5%. It is incorporated into the powder coatings premix prior to extrusion, resulting in a more homogeneous distribution of all powder coatings components.
