Two types of AQUABEAD waxes have been formulated. AQUABEAD 519 contains lower molecular weight polymers for faster water beading in water reducible and solvent based penetrating stains.
Typical usage levels based on total formula weight are 2% for vertical surfaces and 4% for horizontal surfaces. The AQUABEAD grades are effective in paints, stains and coatings over wood, masonry, metal and leather substrates. In matte finishes, AQUABEADcan be used in combination with silicas to improve weather resistance.
