Published on 2017-11-13. Author : SpecialChem

Clariant will introduce new additive solutions developed to meet the specific needs of the Asian coatings market at ChinaCoat taking place in Shanghai from November 15 to 17. Clariant will be exhibiting in Zone 7, Hall W2, Booth No. W2.E21-28.

"Our new innovations will enable formulators to keep up with the trend towards more eco-friendly and low emission coatings, as the transition away from solvent-based coatings continues", says Stephan Lynen, Head of Clariant BU Additives.

"We have new products for waterborne and powder coatings, for use on a broad range of substrates, indoors and outdoors. But we appreciate that moving completely away from solvent-borne coatings is still not possible in all situations, so we continue to develop additives to improve these systems as well."

Clariant's Latest Light Stabilizers

  • A typical example of Clariant's latest innovations is light stabilizer Hostavin® TB-03, a high performance synergistic combination of a UV absorber and a radical scavenger containing neither toluene nor xylene
  • It is suitable for both water- and solvent-borne systems 
  • Two more light stabilizers, Hostavin 3070 P and Hostavin 3070 Disp, offer a "label free" alternative to traditional HALS currently used in solventborne and waterborne systems respectively
  • Hostavin 3070 Disp has been awarded the Clariant EcoTain® label for outstanding sustainability and best-in-class performance
  • This label identifies Clariant products that have an outstanding sustainability and performance profile

Further new introductions provide sustainability benefits for customers producing powder coatings and intumescent coatings. AddWorks® IBC 251 produces an improved tribo-charge effect that reduces over-sprays in powder coating materials and also improves heat stabilization during the baking process.

Exolit® AP 428, a new flame retardant based on ammonium polyphosphate, greatly simplifies the production of waterborne intumescent coatings; it can be used as a flame retardant in textile and plastics applications as well.

Wax-based Additives

Clariant is also launching several new Ceridust® wax-based additives for wood and powder coating systems. Ceridust 2740 TP, for example, a blend that is easy to incorporate into water- and solvent-borne systems, is the company's response to the trend for coatings with higher clarity.

Ceridust 9322 F TP, a PTFE-modified product, provides very high scratch resistance levels in solvent-based coatings and also results in a smooth surface touch; it can also be used in powder coatings to substantially reduce surface friction and improve mar and scratch resistance.
