Evonik Broadens its Matting Agents Portfolio with Inclusion of ACEMATT® 3600

Published on 2011-03-08. Author : SpecialChem

Having been tested and approved by many customers over the past year, ACEMATT® 3600 is now an integral part of Evonik's portfolio of matting agents. ACEMATT® 3600 is distinguished by high transparency of the surface treated, imparting low residual gloss, excellent surface quality, and good abrasion resistance. Like all of Evonik's matting agents, ACEMATT® 3600 is easily and evenly dispersed in coatings, and does not adversely affect the other application properties of coating systems.

Because of its special surface modification, the silica-based matting agent is particularly suitable for UV-cured coatings. Customers are focusing their attention on UV-cured coatings as alternatives to conventional solvent-based coatings. Experts therefore predict above-average market growth for these products compared to other coating technologies.

For many years, Evonik's ACEMATT® products have served paints and coatings producers as efficient matting agents. ACEMATT® matting agents are able to modify the surface of the coating film in such a way that incidental light is scattered in a defined manner. Invisible to the eye, matting agent particles project from the coating in such a way that neither the color of the coating, nor, in the case of clear coatings, the base is appreciably changed.
