Dow-silicone-resinDow has introduced two innovations simplifying the formulation of water-based, high-temperature resistant industrial coatings.

Silicone Resin for High-temperature Resistant Coatings

DOWSIL™ 8016 Waterborne Resin is a new generation silicone resin emulsion with low contribution to odor and emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It offers high temperature resistance up to 500-600°C and elevated coating hardness for metal substrates protection. It is suitable for air drying with appropriate condensation catalysts.

The resin achieves high paint performance and aesthetics without solvent or coalescent , therefore enabling exceptional sustainability profile and facilitated environmental compliance compared to traditional solvent-based formulations. As concerted efforts to limit VOC emissions are ongoing across the industry, this innovation enables formulators of high-temperature resistant coatings to meet increasingly stringent requirements.

Xavier Mollat Du Jourdin, technical support and development manager, will present the specifics of this novel waterborne coating silicone resin and demonstrate its performance attributes in oven-cured paints during a dedicated webinar on Wednesday April 22, 2020 at 10 a.m. Eastern Time.

New Generation Foam Control Agent

Dow is also announcing DOWSIL™ 107F Additive, a new generation foam control agent combining improved compatibility with optimal performance at low dosage in water borne coatings. A formulated defoamer based on silicone polyether and hydrophobic silica, the additive is designed for formulations serving the architectural, wood, and metal coatings segments.
