Make surfaces look and feel better for longer with our property-enhancing additives
Wall paints and wood coatings are not only essential for beautifying homes and buildings but also for preserving their surfaces. Our wax additives are designed to enhance and protect a wide range of architectural coatings, from interior wall paints and wood finishes to solutions for exteriors. We even help to make the journey between homes safer with our products for road marking paint.
Benefiting from advanced technologies, our products can extend the durability of coatings by enhancing their scratch and abrasion resistance. In addition, our additives can improve the look and feel of coated surfaces by boosting features like color strength, matt appearance and soft and silky touch. With our selection of sustainable ingredients, we help manufacturers develop the health- and eco-conscious solutions that coating users desire.
Watch how we blend eco-benefits with easy incorporation
Our Ceridust® products are finely micronized waxes that can be incorporated directly into paints and coatings. Especially our renewable-based solutions are extremely easy to disperse and highly stable in water-based coatings, combining better sustainability with enhanced ease of use and performance.
Renewable-based solutions for boosting the sustainability and quality of coatings
Besides improving the mar resistance, matting and feel of wood finishes, our specialty waxes also enhance the coefficient of friction and anti-blocking properties of surfaces. In our Ceridust® range, we offer renewable wax additives for wood coatings intended for furniture, flooring, window frames and beams, as well as for wall paint applications.
Our natural solutions are based on non-food competing resources, and their easy dispersion in water-based platforms brings the additional benefit of facilitating formulation. Clariant is proud to be at the forefront of supporting the coatings industry in its sustainability journey. With products that increase the use of biomass, comply with ecolabels and at the same time boost formulation ease and product quality, we contribute to a sustainable and healthy paints and coatings future.
