CABOT OFFERS NEW ADDITIVE
FOR POWDER COATINGS
Cabot Corp. has launched a new grade
of fumed silica that significantly
improves the flow properties, storage
stability and application performance
of powder coatings, according to the
company. CAB-O-SIL CT-1221 is a
hydrophobic treated silica that meets
the performance requirements of new
powder coating technologies, such as
high flow systems with lower Tg values,
lower cure temperatures, higher
particle-to-particle interaction and
very low film thickness. CAB-O-SIL
CT-1221 also helps to fluidize metallic
particles in special finishes and enables
high-quality surface finishes with little
orange peel effect. More info: Cabot
