  • Features

    • Reduces surface tension
    • Effective flow promoter
    • Can act as an “anti-silicone” as it can counteract surface defects caused by other silicone-based additives
    • Recommended for 100 % solids epoxy coatings

  • Applications

    • Systems that cure by evaporation or crosslinking
    • 100 % solids epoxy coatings

  • Dosage

    The recommended dosage is 0.01 % to 0.05 % of the total weight of the formulation depending upon the binder system. The exact dosage should be experimentally determined. No intercoat adhesion issues are observed when used at the recommended levels.

  • Storage

    Protect from the effects of weathering and store at temperatures between 5 and 30 °C. Once opened, containers should be resealed immediately after each removal of the product.

  • Safety
