Remodel your View of High Performance Coating Additives

High performance coating lines can showcase your company’s capabilities to customers, but these product lines are often in a league of their own from an inventory management standpoint. When the economics are not balanced with your higher volume product lines, the overhead costs affect your company’s competitiveness and success.

Meet our line-up of coating additives that pack high performance with broad system compatibility to boost your efficiencies and competitiveness. 

A First Place Finish – Slip, Smoothness, and Gloss

  • Excellent slip performance at low addition levels
  • Superior anti-blocking
  • Increased surface smoothness and abrasion resistance
  • Improved leveling
  • Minimal effect on foam stabilization
  • No haze in clear coats
  • No negative effect on gloss in high gloss systems
  • Improve the orientation of metallic pigments and matting agents
