The NYLOTEX products are finely micronized polyamides that are manufactured using unique processing methods to produce controlled texture additives. The particle size is meticulously monitored to produce a uniform textured surface in all types paints and coatings.
NYLOTEX exhibits a higher melt point than standard polyolefins making it suitable for high temperature applications. The higher melting point of NYLOTEX will insure a consistent texture even at high baking or curing temperatures.
The level of addition depends on the degree of texture desired. Usually, adding 4-6% based upon resin solids of NYLOTEX will give a moderate textured finish.
Since NYLOTEX can be easily dispersed into all types of paints and coatings using a high speed mixer, the need for pre-dispersion or grinding are not necessary.
Typical Applications: Coil Coatings, Powder Coatings, Industrial Paints & Finishes and Floor Coatings.
