OM Group Inc.
Surfactants offered:Flow and leveling additives
Product name:Borchi Gol LA 200
Attributes/Comments:Borchi Gol LA 200 is an additive based on a modified siloxane which provides good slip performance and reduces embedded air bubbles (air release) in cured films. In addition, leveling performance during the application as well as scratch resistance is achieved. Borchi Gol LA 200 is suitable for all decorative and industrial paint and coatings, in particular for 2-pack waterborne polyurethane systems.
Product name:Borchi Gol LA 232
Attributes/Comments:Borchi Gol LA 232 is a novel silicone additive in the market which offers above average properties regarding surface slip reduction of cured films, constructed in a similar way to Borchi Gol LA 200, small quantities are required to obtain sufficient and constant low slip numbers, thus the risk of losing interact adhesion can be ruled out. Borchi Gol LA 232 is highly compatible in multiple performance coatings.
Tego Coating Additives and Specialty Resins
Surfactants offered:Polyether siloxane copolymers, non-ionic organic surfactants
Tego Wet 505
Attributes/Comments:Tego Wet 505 is a silicone-free, highly compatible dynamic substrate wetting additive. Tego Wet 505 improves pigment wetting and maintains recoatability while providing a significant degassing effect.
Product name:Tego Wet 270
Attributes/Comments:Tego Wet 270 is a highly effective substrate wetting additive for low-energy substrates. Tego Wet 270 provides an excellent reduction of static surface tension and prevention of craters.
Florham Park, NJ
Product name:Troysol LAC
Attributes/Comments:Promotes superior wetting for aqueous and water reducible inks applied to low energy surfaces. Low concentrations, reduce the coating surface tension resulting in improved adhesion, excellent flow and leveling, with the elimination of surface defects.
Product name:Troysol ZLAC
Attributes/Comments:Provides the same benefits and attributes long associated with Troysol LAC, but without the VOC. The product is particularly effective in wetting low energy and contaminated surfaces, without causing undesired fisheyes and other problems. Troysol ZLAC eliminates surface de�fects, improves adhesion, gloss, flow and leveling and color acceptance.
