Troy Presents Troykyd® D209W, a Non-solvent Defoamer for High Gloss Aqueous Coatings

Published on 2014-09-23. Author : SpecialChem

Florham Park, NJ -- Manufacturers of aqueous high-gloss and wood coatings now have a new solvent-free, high-performance additive that eliminates foam without compromising surface appearance or integrity: Troykyd® D209W from Troy Corporation. Highly compatible Troykyd® D209W offers excellent functionality in a broad range of aqueous systems, including high-gloss and wood coatings, both clear and pigmented, as well as other end-use areas, including spray applied systems. With a solvent-free composition, Troykyd® D209W is an excellent choice for environmentally 'green' coatings.

"An essential capability of a new generation, high-performance defoaming additive is minimization of surface defects," said Troy's Dr. Izzy Colon, Vice President, Science & Technology. "While conventional defoamers have a tendency to create cratering and pinholes in end-use systems, Troykyd® D209W leaves systems virtually free of surface defects." Additionally, Troykyd® D209W does not compromise the system's gloss or clarity, which makes the product ideal for high-quality clear and high-gloss coatings.

Troykyd® D209W has shown equivalent defoaming performance when compared with the leading competitor products in fresh aqueous paint samples, and superior defoaming performance in aged samples, which translates into a significantly longer useful service life for end-use paints and coatings. "Developed for high quality 'green' aqueous coatings, Troykyd® D209W offers formulators significant performance, compatibility, and use advantages," continues Colon.
