Dow Corning introduces "Dow Corning 8526”, an easy-to-use silicone polyether, that provides good leveling and slip in waterborne, solventborne and radiation-curable paints and inks. The additive is compatible with a broad range of binder types. And because the materials are listed in the Swiss ordinance, the product is suitable for both food and nonfood applications.

Effective at low addition levels

The additive is compatible with acrylic, epoxy, polyester and urethane formulations. Additionally, it can be diluted in alcohols, glycol ethers, aromatic solvents and water for greater formulation versatility. Its effectiveness at low addition levels helps formulators reduce their formulation costs. This feature also reduces unwanted side effects and enables good recoatability, so there are fewer rework concerns.
