Additives for Premium Performance Coatings

See why Grace’s silica additives portfolio, including matting agents, moisture scavengers, and TiO2 extenders, is a leading choice amongst formulators.

Matting agents: Remarkably natural matte finishes

Achieve low gloss levels while maintaining good film performance with SYLOID® silica matting agents. Grace has a vast selection of matting agents for solvent-based, waterborne and UV or hybrid UV/water coatings systems.

Across Grace’s portfolio, expect superior matting efficiency and stain resistance, high clarity and burnishing resistance, and excellent scratch and metal marking resistance.  

Moisture scavengers: Uniquely efficient coatings additives

SYLOSIV® zeolite powders have exceptional adsorptive capacity at very low moisture levels, which distinguish them from other drying agents and make them the ideal choice for applications in which even the smallest amount of water can be damaging to the coating. 

Incredibly brilliant finishes

SYLOWHITE SM 405 titanium dioxide extender is a precipitated amorphous sodium aluminum magnesium silicate with very fine particle size, appearing as a white free-flowing powder. Due to its performance benefits, it is widely used in many different coatings.
