CECA at ECS 2013: Launches its Range of Surfactants and Polyols for Coatings

Published on 2013-03-20. Author : SpecialChem

CECA is presenting its range of surfactants and polyols, functional additives and molecular sieves at the European Coatings Show 2013 exhibition being held in Nuremberg - Germany from 19 to 21 March 2013 - Stand 424 - Hall 4.

On this occasion CECA launches its complete range of surfactants and polyols sold under the brand names Dianol®, Adiansol®, Ensoline® and Surfaline®. The Dianol® and Adiansol® products are used to improve the adhesion properties and hydrolysis resistance of industrial coatings and automotive resins. The Ensoline® and Surfaline® products are wetting and dispersing agents for better stabilization of paints. CECA's alkoxylates, polyols and surfactants are unique additives that perfectly complement Arkema's offer in the field of paints.

The leading European producer of diatomaceous earth and perlite filter aid, CECA supplies its minerals under the brand names Clarcel® and Randafil™ in a range of functional additives for paints as well as decorative and industrial coatings. The physical structure and morphology of diatoms and perlite bring a matting effect and give the film roughness, enabling better inter-layer adhesion. Through their hardness and chemical inertness, these minerals also increase the functional abrasion resistance of coatings, thus extending their lifetime. Furthermore, the porosity of diatomite enables the control of vapour permeability while providing weathertight qualities.

With 40 years of experience in molecular sieves, CECA also offers a wide range of adsorbents to address various problems related to the presence of water in mono and bi-component polyurethane systems. Sold under the brand name Siliporite®, these molecular sieves are excellent desiccants and humidity traps, used to prevent surface defects and extend the pot life of polyurethane systems.

The demands placed on paint and coatings for use in the automotive industry, construction chemicals, mechanical engineering, aerospace or shipbuilding are growing all the time. Decision-makers and opinion leaders in the coatings industry face great challenges. The European Coatings Show 2013 gives them the opportunity to meet with innovation leaders and discuss the latest developments in nanoparticles, pigments, additives, production equipment or application equipment. The European Coatings Show in 2011 hosted more than 850 exhibitors and 25,000 visitors.
