Key benefits for Industrial Wood Coatings

Arkema offers rheology modifiers, flow & leveling additives, surface modifiers as well as dispersing agents.

Crayvallac® additives have been developed to help formulators improve the performance of water-based, solvent-based, high solids, UV and powder Industrial Wood Coatings.

• Rheology modifiers introduce a shear-thinning behavior and excellent viscosity recovery enabling good sag resistance without impacting the leveling and the transparency of the film.

• Surface modifiers provide improved mechanical properties (scratch, abrasion), water and chemical resistance, anti-blocking, gloss control and sandability.

• Flow and levelling additives can be used to eliminate many types of surface defects such as orange peel, craters and pinholes.

• Dispersants are essential components for enhancing the storage performance and the final aspect of the coatings in terms of color development and gloss development.
