|IR-825||Polyether modified polymethyl alkyl siloxane solution (equivalent to BYK-325)|
|Density at 20°C, g/ml||Non-volatile matter, %||Flashpoint, °C|
|Solvents: alkylbenzenes/butyrolactone 1/1|
|Dosage based upon inorganic pigments, %|
These additives slightly reduce the surface tension of paint systems, which thus improves flow and leveling and displays partial defoaming properties. Additionally, they prevent “Bénard Cell” formation.
|Solvent-borne coatings||Aqueous coatings|
These additives can be added during any production process, including post-addition.
|IR-825||IR-825 prevents ghosting (wipe-marks) if recoated with the same paint. It neither causes rewetting problems nor influences recoatability.|
Packed in iron drums of 25 or 200kg net each. The validity period is 12 months in sealed containers.
|IR-825||Products may become solid if temperatures are below 15°C.|
Heat up to <50°C and mix well before use.
