Evonik Ringier Technology Innovation Award Quick-set Paint Ingredient Evonik’s TEGO® Guard 9000 has been recognized for its unique quick-set property with the Ringier Technology Innovation Award for the coatings industry. It is a prestigious award for innovation in the coatings industry that has been presented since 2006. TEGO® Guard 9000 is a new technology for exterior wall paints.

The new technology improves the stabilization of paint ingredients in facade coatings directly after application. It provides almost immediate protection against weathering.

Offers High Rain Resistance

The quick-set property of TEGO® Guard 9000 is achieved by electrostatic interaction between a cationic organic polymer and the anionic paint ingredients in the coating formulation. This provides high rain resistance within minutes of application. It reduces the moisture content of substrates and surfaces and inhibits moss and mold growth.

TEGO® Guard 9000 can be incorporated into coating formulations without compromising storage stability. It can be used in a wide range of latex systems, different PVCs and color formulations.

TEGO® Guard 9000 is a technology for exterior wall paints,” said Dr. Katina Kiep, head of Global Decorative Coatings market segment at Evonik Coating Additives.

With its quick-set property, it provides a sustainable solution for architectural facade coatings, reducing the impact of weathering on the application process and increasing the durability and long-term protection. We are honored to receive this award and extremely proud of the ingenuity our team demonstrated in developing this product.

TEGO® Guard 9000 has a very low VOC content and meets the requirements of eco-labels. This makes it suitable for use in eco-label complaint sustainable waterborne coating formulations. Protecting buildings from the environment is a universal requirement for exterior wall paints, and TEGO® Guard 9000 meets this need with its advanced technology.
