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.

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.
