Reduce coating surface defects
DIAX™ 2770 polymer promotes optimum surface quality in solvent-based coatings by reducing defects associated with foaming. This polymer, which is a liquid at room temperature, is most effective when combined with acrylic or modified-acrylic flow additives.
In powder coating applications, our micronized functional and non-functional polyethylene grades improve lubrication, flow, de-gassing, scratch-resistance, slip and surface texture. Ask for a sample of our POLYMEKON™ and POLYWAX polyethylenes.
Ensure optimum color development
PETROLITE™ D-1038 dispersant, based on our UNITHOX™ ethoxylate technology, excels when used to disperse high-color carbon blacks and other colored pigments into aqueous systems.The PETROLITE D-1038 dispersant is 100% VOC-free for the most demanding environmental regulations. Hit your release target
The tight melt ranges of POLYWAX™ polyethylenes allow you to target the release properties of your toner, thermal transfer ink, and other imaging products. Low melt points enable you to formulate imaging systems that use less energy.
Obtain better formulation compatibility
Our functional polymers improve compatibility between polar and nonpolar materials. Ask to see our data on the use of UNITHOX ethoxylates and CERAMER polymers as compatibilizers for improved release wax dispersion in toners.
Customize with functional chemistry
Our functional chemistry allows you to create custom additives or resins. Our products—which are based on polyethylene, polypropylene, and hydrocarbons—offer different properties that can be included into your additive or resin.
