These new coatings additives are silicone-free

By Chemical Engineering |

TEGO Flow 375 and TEGO Flow 460 N are two new flow and leveling additives specifically developed for use in can and coil coatings. Both products are suitable for direct contact with food (FDA 175.300). This reduces complexity for coatings manufacturers and enables broad use. Instead of using many different products, manufacturers can use the same additive for more diverse end-uses. Both products are silicone-free. Impurities and aEvonikWCssociated cratering can therefore be excluded, thus ensuring smooth-running production, says the company. In addition, the flow and leveling additives exhibit improved heat resistance and give the coating a durable, high-quality appearance. Very good adhesion and wetting properties in multi-coat finishes enable both products to be used in all the coats without impairing the painting process. — Evonik Industries AG, Essen, Germany
