Evonik Launches SILIKOTOP® E 900 & SILIKOTOP® E 901, Binders for Diverse Protective Coatings

Published on 2014-11-14. Author : SpecialChem

Evonik’s new brand SILIKOTOP® promotes silicone hybrid resins which combine high solids content and excellent performance. The first two products, SILIKOTOP® E 900 and SILIKOTOP® E 901 excel in top coat application for diverse protective coatings ranging from marine to trucks & public transport to wood coatings. 

Both products offer extraordinary advantages in processability and appearance. The very high solids content of 90% combined with a low viscosity help to formulate low VOC formulations that are easily processable. In terms of applicability, SILIKOTOP® E 900 and SILIKOTOP® E 901 enable film thicknesses of up to 200 m in a single coating layer. In markets like trucks & public transport, protective coatings must be functional but also satisfy appearance characteristics. 

The SILIKOTOP® resins fulfill these qualities by providing excellent corrosion protection, a remarkable appearance, as well as excellent leveling properties. The new SILIKOTOP® resins differ mainly in flexibility/hardness and chemical resistance. SILIKOTOP® E 900 shows a significantly enhanced flexibility with good tough-elasticity ensuring durability in heavy duty applications. SILIKOTOP® E 901 promotes increased weather and chemical resistances, faster drying and a higher hardness in the cured film.
