Additive makes anti-stick coatings scratch-resistant

  • SynAdd from ECKART optimises technical properties of coatings and plastics
  • Exceptional matting and milky glass effects

Hartenstein, 25.04.2022 - Easy to process, highly transparent and extremely colour-pure: SynAdd, the new additive from ECKART, opens up a wide range of possibilities for coatings and plastics manufacturers to optimise their products. Among other things, it serves to improve technical properties such as scratch resistance. At the same time, it can also be used for optical effects. The powder is suitable for use in aqueous and solvent-based systems.

In lacquers and plastics, the synthetic additive minimises tiny cracks on the surface. This improves the technical properties of the products. Anti-stick coatings, for example, become scratch-resistant as a result. Thanks to improved surface texture, the haptics of the products also benefit.

SynAdd can also be used to achieve certain optical effects. It can be used to achieve extraordinary matting and milky glass effects in plastics and lacquers.
