Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Patcham (FZC)
PAT-ADD LE 1040 by Patcham FZC is polysiloxane in ethylene glycol n-butyl ether solvent. Acts as a slip control, mar resistance and levelling agent. Enhances the flow and levelling, substrate wetting as well as air release. Possesses wide range of compatibility and reduces coefficient of friction (COF). It is a very efficient surface tension modifier, effective at very low concentrations. The product demonstrates excellent substrate wetting, thus avoiding the formation of craters, pinholes and poor substrate coverage of coatings applied onto critical substrates such as improperly cleaned substrates and low surface tension substrates. It offers excellent surface smoothness, contributes to slip and mar resistance and counteracts pigment floating or foam formation. It is effective in epoxies, acrylic and polyester melamine resin based industrial paints. PAT-ADD LE 1040 is suitable for use in pigmented as well as clear coating systems. Its recommended dosage is between 0.05 and 1.0% calculated on the total weight of formulation. It is a REACH compliant.
