|IR-830||Polyester modified polydimethylsiloxane solution (equivalent to BYK-310)|
|Density at 20°C, g/ml||Non-volatile matter, %||Flashpoint, °C||Solvent|
|Dosage based upon total formulation, %|
|IR-830||0.05-0.3, in the solvent-free system, can up to 0.5|
IR-830 can be added during any production stage, including post-addition.
IR-830 provides a strong reduction in surface tension of paint systems, especially for improving substrate wetting and avoiding cratering. Additionally, surface slip and gloss are increased.
Compared to silicone oils, IR-830 is user-friendly. However, please test the foam stability through experiments before use. Additionally, it is necessary to assess its recoatability and shrinkage cavity tendency.
IR-830 is widely used in solvent-free and solvent-borne coating systems, printing inks, adhesive systems, and ambient-curing plastic systems. It belongs to thermal-stable organo-silicone auxiliaries and will not decompose between 150~230℃. This is different from traditional organic silicon. Thus, surface defect and adhesion reduction will not happen when recoating.
Packed in iron drums of 25 kg or 200 kg net each. The validity period is 12 months in sealed containers. Separation or turbidity may occur at temperatures below 5℃.
