Coatings R&D Notebook
The effects of different kinds of additives on the performance of coatings are discussed. Additives that consist of a complex blend of selected heat-reflecting ceramic microspheres have the appearance of a fine powder and, when stirred into a paint formulation, provide the painted surface with a thermal radiant heat barrier. Grinding resins and dispersing additives aid in the dispersion of pigments during the milling stage of formulating a coating. The inclusion of wax emulsion additives into coating formulations provide significant application advantages.
