Dow Launches Silicone Slip Additive for Waterborne Wood Coatings

  • It improves the mar and abrasion resistance and anti-blocking performance of waterborne wood coatings
  • It reduces the tendency for surface cratering
  • It has no impact on mechanical properties, surface hardness or water resistance
  • Exhibits less impact on gloss

"At Dow, we are continually fine-tuning our silicone additive technologies to help formulators create coatings that not only meet a growing array of global safety and VOC regulations but also meet consumer desires for superior coating quality and performance," said Dow Corning Europe SA Coatings and Leather Global Segment Leader Chris Wall.

Ultrahigh-molecular-weight Silicone Dispersion Technology

  • Dow Corning 210S Additive is a third-generation version of Dow’s unique, ultrahigh-molecular-weight silicone dispersion technology
  • It reduces static and dynamic coefficient of friction at very low use levels. 
  • It can be used alone or in combination with wax emulsions
  • The additive is a cost-effective choice for enhancing the performance of waterborne wood coatings

"Dow Corning 210S Additive offers wood coating formulators the best of two worlds – the proven performance of established technology, plus a level of compatibility that extends the range of formulations where class-leading performance can be achieved," Wall said.
