Additives for giving tougher coats to what carries and connects us
Marine, protective and intumescent coatings have to be particularly robust and, especially in environments like the sea and ocean, resist constant challenges and threats. Our Licowax® and Ceridust® waxes help to increase the film thicknesses of ships and freighters. They also make crucial features of such films, like water resistance and slip performance, easier to control.
Our solutions give better mechanical strength and scratch and scuff resistance to vehicle coatings and coil coatings, which is especially important for heavy duty applications. Benefits range from better protection of metal substrates against rust and delamination to improved surface finishes, color properties, and even flop effects. To 3C coatings, used for applications like phone casings and computer keyboards, our waxes are also able to add many advantages, including longer durability, better looks and smoother feel.
Special solutions for special challenges – a few examples from our portfolio
Using our long-standing experience and expertise, we have the ambition of providing high-quality solutions to our customers’ needs that are closely tailored to their challenges and applications.
Thanks to their thixotropic effects, our Ceridust® 3716 and 3910 waxes can provide exceptional film thicknesses, enhancing coatings longevity in aggressive environments. Ceridust® 3920 F and 9610 F are designed to boost the mechanical robustness and abrasion resistance of can coatings and 3C coatings, while Ceridust® 8091 Vita and 8330 can be used to give a more pleasant feel to the coatings of consumer products. With Licowax® 371 F, we offer a special additive for improving pigment orientation and flop effects, and our Licocene® PP MA grades can help to provide enhanced corrosion resistance on metal substrates.
