Clariant will present its new digital solutions as well as more sustainable products for paints and coatings during the next edition of ChinaCoat.
During ChinaCoat 2023, Clariant will showcase its new portfolio of wetting and dispersing agents for water-based formulations as well as its PTFE-free additives – thus offering more sustainable options for paints and coatings as well as improving the corrosion resistance and reducing the formulation viscosity. Clariant has also launched a new Chinese version of its ClariCoat digital platform, a web application designed for specialists in the paint and coatings industry and particularly useful for formulators looking for advice on additives.
“At ChinaCoat 2023 look out for our high-performance additives that address various formulation challenges in the fields of 1K acrylic direct to metal’ (DTM) and 2k-epoxy primers or mid-layers, found in applications such as container coatings, transportation and construction equipment. For paint manufacturers of water-based industrial coatings, we offer multi-functional WDAs with higher flexibility according to their requirements,” has stated Sebastian Prock, Clariant’s Head of Marketing, Industrial Applications, BU Care Chemicals.
In addition, the company will exhibit its growing portfolio of PTFE-free solutions such as Ceridust 8170 M, a PTFE-free texturing agent for powder coatings
which reduces energy consumption during the powder coating extrusion process. On the other hand, Ceridust 8330 is a PTFE-free alternative with excellent abrasion resistance made from renewable resources.
“We are excited to share the ongoing evolution of coatings and inks, driven in part by our novel additive solutions, which have given us the choice of PTFE-free alternatives in construction, furniture and other applications. We are proud of our PTFE-free alternatives, like Ceridust® 8170 M, demonstrating our corporate dedication to minimising environmental impact,” has added Ray Gonzales, Clariant’s Head of marketing Coatings & Adhesives, BU Adsorbents and Additives.
