● Clariant has launched a new wax for UV
paints. It is available in two forms,
Licomont ER 165, granule form, and
Ceridust 5091, micropowder. Unlike
conventional wax types, it can be
firmly anchored in the paint film
through light energy due to the modification
of the wax with recently
introduced reactive double bonds.
These lead to additional bonds
between wax and other substances in
the paint during curing. The result is
a two or three-dimensional cross linkage
which fixes the wax in the paint
and prevents migration to the surface.
