Finmatt-Matting Agent

Finmatt 121V

Description

 

Finmatt 121V is a matting agent combination of organic and inorganic components for use in various coating systems. In addition to its good dispersibility, Finmatt 121V has minimal influence on the surface resistance. Even at high incorporation amounts (5 – 10%), the chemical resistance (against alcohol, hand cream, etc.) is not impaired.

 

Finmatt 121V is part of the soft Finmatt matting agent range and especially well-suited to obtain soft-touch/anti-slip surfaces.

 

 

Application

 

Parquet varnishes
Plastic part coatings
Furniture coatings/foils
Glass coatings
Foil coatings
(Artificial)Leather-Topcoats
Packaging inks

Finmatt 152V

Finmatt 152V is a matting agent combination of organic and inorganic components for use in various coating systems. In addition to its good dispersibility, Finmatt 152V has minimal influence on the surface resistance. Even at high incorporation amounts (5 – 10%), the chemical resistance (against alcohol, hand cream, etc.) is not impaired.

 

Finmatt 152V is part of the hard Finmatt matting agent range and especially well-suited to obtain surfaces with very high abrasion and scratch resistance as well as marking resistance.

Finmatt S-H11

Description

 

Finmatt S-H11 is a polymer-modified, amorphous, micronized silica matting agent used to efficiently matt various coating systems. The particles have a slightly hydrophobic, reactive surface.

 

Finmatt S-H11 is especially advantageous in matting radically curing coatings.

 

Compared to conventional silica matting agents, it is easier to incorporate in 100% UV- coatings, has a smaller impact on viscosity and results in more transparent films while having the same matting efficiency.

 

Moreover, the polishing resistance of alkyd resins is increased due to the optimal integration of the matting agent.

 

When used in 1 pack and 2 pack water-based coatings, Finmatt S-H11 results in an improved chemical resistance even of heavily matted surfaces (5 – 10% matting agent).

 

 

Applications

 

Plastic part coatings
Wood coatings/foils
Furniture coatings/foils
Foil coatings
Glass coatings

Finmatt – Soft Matting Agent Range

Description

 

Finmatt powders are a matting agent combination of organic and inorganic components for use in various coating systems. In addition to its good dispersibility, Finmatt has minimal influence on the binder viscosity.

 

Surface resistance

 

Even at high amounts (5 – 10%), the chemical resistance (against alcohol, hand cream, etc.) and mechanical resistance (against marking, polishing) of dull matt surfaces are not impaired.

 

Anti-Slip

 

The soft Finmatt range includes different mean particles sizes to adjust to various dry film thicknesses. The matting agents are designed for soft-touch or anti-slip surfaces, not to increase the soft-touch effect, but to best retain the soft touch given by the binder.

 

 

Applications

 

Parquet varnishes, floor care products
Plastic part coatings
Furniture coatings/foils
Glass coatings
Foil coatings
Packaging inks
(Artificial)Leather-Topcoats
Pavement, concrete coatings

Finmatt – Hard Matting Agent Range

Description

 

Finmatt powders are a matting agent combination of organic and inorganic components for use in various coating systems. In addition to its good dispersibility, Finmatt has low influence on the binder viscosity.

 

The hard Finmatt range includes different mean particles sizes to adjust to various dry film thicknesses. These matting agents are especially designed to achieve the best surface resistance possible.

 

Even at high amounts (8 – 10%), in dull matt coatings, the resistance against marking, polishing and abrasion is not impaired. In the same way, the influence on chemical surface resistance (against alcohol, coffee, hand crème, etc.) is low.

 

 

Applications
Parquet varnishes
Plastic part coatings
Furniture coatings/foils
Glass coatings
Foil coatings
Packaging inks
(Artificial)Leather-Topcoats

Finma-Sorb 430PR

  • Finma-Sorb molecular sieve pastes are mainly used for the removal of moisture in water-sensitive.
  • Applications – as 2K polyurethane systems.
  • Moisture can be entrained by raw materials and humidity. This can lead to undesirable side reactions, which can cause degassing and foam formation within the formulation.
  • Finma-Sorb 430PR selectively adsorbs water molecules and is therefore particularly suitable for avoiding the above effects.
  • The use of Finma-Sorb 430PR paste offers special advantages. It is ready-to-use with optimized and controlled dispersing fineness. The paste is free flowing and offers dust-free operation, thus facilitating handling and dosing. At the same time, the molecular sieve in the paste is protected from contamination and thus retains its high activity.
