Cabot's CAB-O-SIL treated and untreated fumed silicas are used in industrial liquid coatings to provide sag resistance and high film build. A range of treated silicas is available for optimal performance in each coating system.
Treated fumed silicas designed specifically for powder coatings to provide optimum free-flow and fluidization are also available. For tribocharge systems, SpectrAl fumed aluminas provide both fluidization and tribocharging.
New products designed for UV-cured coatings provide abrasion resistance without negatively impacting coating viscosity or appearance.
Additionally, CAB-O-SPERSE Dispersions are highly stable waterborne dispersions of fumed alumina or fumed silica that present an easy-to-use "pour-in" alternative to their powder form precursors. The superior state of particle dispersion provided by CAB-O-SPERSE products delivers uniform reinforcing particle distributions that improve mechanical properties in coatings.
Fumed silica is widely used for rheology control of liquid systems, including automotive and industrial paints and coatings. However, CAB-O-SIL fumed silica and CAB-O-SPERSE Dispersions can also deliver a number of other performance benefits including:
- Rheology control for liquid coatings
- Sag resistance to build film thickness
- Thixotropy, control of flow and leveling to give optimum gloss and surface appearance
- Free-flow additive for powder coatings
- Fluidization of powder coatings
- Abrasion resistance in UV cured coatings
- Increased hardness, abrasion resistsance, and corrosion resistance in waterborne coatings.
