Lubrizol -advanced-materials-inc-/'>Lubrizol Advanced Materials, Inc. has launched PowerAdd 9080 structuring additive for hammertone finishes. Using PowerAdd 9080 additive, formulators of industrial powder coatings, including polyester-TGC, polyester/epoxy hybrids, polyester/primids or urethanes, can achieve uniform, reproducible hammertone finishes. It works across a variety of pigmentations and can be used to create a hammertone effect with metallic and non-metallic pigments. Effective at low addition rates, PowerAdd 9080 additive produces a coarse structure in powder coatings when added between 0.2-0.5%. It is incorporated into the powder coatings premix prior to extrusion, resulting in a more homogeneous distribution of all powder coatings components.
