End the Matting Compromise - Introducing SYLOID® CAT 11 Silica
Developed for high-performance polyurethane coil and general industrial coatings applications
Retaining adequate catalyst activity by accepting a less efficient matting is an unfortunate tradeoff in today’s fast-paced coatings market. End the compromise with Grace SYLOID® CAT 11 silica, an untreated silica matting agent developed for high-performance polyurethane coil and general industrial coatings applications.
In high bake polyurethane systems, standard silica matting agents significantly reduce the catalyst activity, resulting in diminished cure response. With SYLOID® CAT 11 silica, excellent cure response – even at low gloss levels – can be achieved. Developed to reduce the impact on catalyst activity, SYLOID® CAT 11 silica’s unique skeleton design effectively minimizes the catalyst-silica interaction keeping the catalyst active during the curing process.
SYLOID® CAT 11 silica matting agent benefits
- Lower cost-in-use
- Very good matting efficiency
- Low impact on catalyst activity, especially tin based catalysts for PU systems
- Outstanding gloss/sheen ratio
- Comparable mechanical properties to polymeric matting agents
- Easily dispersible
