Additive solutions for powder coatings in building and construction


For metal surfaces that have to be particularly tough, powder coatings are often used (which also do not require solvents and thus have the further advantage of not emitting volatile organic compounds). Clariant provides powerful additive solutions to make sure these coatings stay tough, even if the going gets rough! They are usable for a broad range of powder resins, such as polyester or polyester/epoxy binders and usable with Primid® products. The additives comprise not only light stabilizer solutions, but also antioxidants, thus preventing gas fading and thermal yellowing of powder coatings. 


  • Hostavin® 3051 P
    Hostavin 3051 P is a non-substituted hindered amine light stabilizer (HALS) powder, with enhanced tribo effect for powder coating applications. It also offers good solubility and broad compatibility in all kind of solventborne paint systems.
  • Hostavin® 3070 P
    Hostavin 3070 P is an oligomeric HALS in powder form, with a high molecular weight, excellent resistance to migration and very low volatility. It has a unique profile as a non-hazardous, label-free HALS. Hostavin 3070 P is suitable for many applications such as automotive OEM, refinish, general industrial, plastic, wood and UV cured coatings.
  • Plastics in industrial building and construction
    In the area of plastics used in industrial building and construction, Clariant has come up with a range of innovative solutions for polymer improvement. They make roofs and outdoor decks more weather-proof, window frames more aesthetic, and in some cases they can even make watching a soccer match a much more pleasurable experience. Thanks to the protection given by light stabilizers as well as a strong heat resistance resulting from the use of antioxidants or heat stabilizers, plastics for Industrial, Building and Construction using Clariant's AddWorks® IBC solutions are well protected against temperature, even high temperature during conversion or end use, or even against intense UV radiation, as well as other difficult weather conditions.
  • Architectural coatings in building and construction
    Our state-of-the-art coating solutions help to preserve and protect that well-being, providing e.g. dirt pickup resistance to prolong the proper looks of architectural coatings. Light stabilizer solutions contribute to making both the coatings and the substrates they protect more resistant to the highly exposed conditions they usually have to endure, like façade coatings based on styrene acrylic mixtures.
  • Wood coatings in building and construction
    The natural beauty of wood is something worthy of the best protection against weather conditions and other influences which might mar its shine and intense colors. We offer e.g. light stabilizer solutions that improve weathering resistance and reduce color fading and loss of gloss.
  • Light and heat stabilizer solution for SMP sealants
    The new AddWorks® IBC 760 provides you with an additive solution addressing these challenges, all while enhancing the performance of SMP sealants. It is hazard label-free and has global registration status.
