Coating Additive

Tego

Producers of solvent-based wood coatings often experience the following challenge: Additives that provide good haptic (feel/touch) properties are not recoatable—and vice versa. Evonik has launched a new product that provides both of these properties—TEGO® Glide 496. The new TEGO® Glide 496 is suitable for both solvent- and water-based formulations, has excellent compatibility, and demonstrates scratch-resistance improvement in various systems. The additive is globally registered and complies with various food contact regulations. Besides wood lacquers, the coatings industry has a growing interest for such a new additive in plastics, industrial, and transportation coatings as well as printing inks.

Polymer Binders

Wacker

WACKER has introduced its product line VINNEVA®. The polymer binders are manufactured to enhance the properties of bitumen-based building coatings and to help ensure that they adhere to concrete, brick, and cement. They are also engineered to protect roofs and basements from the ingress of water. Water-pressure tests have revealed that when water presses onto a coated concrete slab at high pressure for a full day, VINNEVA-modified bitumen forms a more effective barrier than bitumen emulsions modified with other additives.
