Durazane® 5500

Durazane® 5500 by Merck KGaA, Darmstadt Germany is a dispersion of core/shell-nanoparticles to improve the scratch resistance of solvent-borne coatings. It consists of an amorphous SiO2 core and a polymer cladding material. Since the nano particles are completely incorporated in a polymeric matrix, no nanoscalic dust is produced when the solvent is removed. It is compatible with clear and pigmented solvent-based 2 K PU coatings systems. A dosage of 1-2.5% of Durazane® 5500 is recommended for coating formulations. As the polymer shell contains OH-groups, the amount of hardener should be adapted to the dosage of Durazane® 5500. It has a shelf life of 36 months.
