Evonik at ACS 2014: To Feature TEGO® Twin 4200, SILIKOPHEN® AC 900 & 1000

Published on 2014-04-07. Author : SpecialChem

ESSEN -- At this year's ACS in Atlanta, Ga., Evonik's TEGO group will feature three new product rollouts and debut the Spanish version of their tego.us website.

TEGO® Twin 4200 is the new universal substrate wetting additive for waterborne wood coatings, industrial coatings and printing inks, which can also be used in solvent borne and UV cured applications. It provides outstanding wetting and anti-cratering properties without stabilizing foam. TEGO® Twin 4200's 100% active matter content allows for its use in modern zero VOC formulations.

SILIKOPHEN® AC 900 and SILIKOPHEN® AC 1000 were designed for the high temperature applications of industrial objects, muffler coatings and oven coatings. Due to their ambient temperature curing capabilities, these resins permit energy-saving coating application of large objects which would otherwise prove difficult in a traditional bake-cure system. SILIKOPHEN® AC 900 is very flexible during heating and cools down. It is also highly compatible with organic resins and shows excellent wetting properties with a wide range of pigments and fillers. Additionally, SILIKOPHEN® AC 1000 provides excellent color stability with many pigments.

All of this information and much more can be found on the tego.us English homepage and, as of April 1, in Spanish as well. The consistent growth of Mexico's coatings industry coupled with the ever-increasing prevalence of the Spanish speaking population in the US created an opportunity for TEGO to broaden their communication efforts.

Also, Evonik will unveil its new 'One Partner, Many Experts,' coating industry initiative at the American Coatings Show (ACS). 'One Partner, Many Experts,' encompasses Evonik's global network of experts from diverse businesses and functions such as marketing, sales and research and development. This team stands behind each Evonik contact to serve the coatings industry and provide solutions to customers.

"Fostering strong relationships and collaborations with our customers is the key to success in business," said Dr. Ulrich Küsthardt, president of Evonik's Coatings & Additives business unit. "Our 'One Partner, Many Experts,' initiative capitalizes on this philosophy by approaching our customers' problems with creative solutions. In order to do so, we tap into our global network of experts who harness decades of experience in the coatings market and foster cooperative partnerships with our customers through the Evonik contacts they are working with."

As one of the world's leading specialty chemical companies, Evonik is actively committed to the coatings industry in North America, one of its core competency markets with good prospects for growth.

"Evonik has established a strong position in the North American coatings market with an offering of resource-efficient and environmentally-friendly products," said John Rolando, president of Evonik Corporation. "However, there is further growth potential and the key to achieving this goal is through strong partnerships with our customers."
