Wax Additives: Texture

Texture
Texture

Wax additives can also be used as texture additives. In this case, the particle size of the respective wax additive is large enough to induce a texture.  





BYK Additive Recommendations

Aqueous systems

RecommendationCERAFLOUR 913

Micronized polypropylene wax for solvent-borne and aqueous systems, to achieve very fine surface textures. Provides a soft feel effect and matting properties.

CERAFLOUR 914

Micronized polypropylene wax for solvent-borne and aqueous systems, to achieve fine surface textures.

CERAFLOUR 915

Micronized polypropylene wax for solvent-borne and aqueous systems, to achieve medium surface textures.

CERAFLOUR 916

Micronized, modified HDPE wax/polymer mixture for solvent-borne and aqueous systems, to achieve medium to coarse surface textures.

Non-aqueous systems

RecommendationCERAFLOUR 913

CERAFLOUR 914

Micronized polypropylene wax for solvent-borne and aqueous systems, to achieve fine surface textures.

CERAFLOUR 915

Micronized polypropylene wax for solvent-borne and aqueous systems, to achieve medium surface textures.

CERAFLOUR 916

Micronized, modified HDPE wax/polymer mixture for solvent-borne and aqueous systems, to achieve medium to coarse surface textures.

CERAFLOUR 917

Temperature stable wax additive with excellent shear stability for solvent-borne and aqueous coating systems.

Powder systems

RecommendationCERAFLOUR 965

Micronized PTFE for powder coatings. Creates fine-textured, scratch-resistant and matt surfaces.

CERAFLOUR 967

Synthetic polymer for powder coatings to obtain coarse-textured surfaces. In conjunction with metal pigments, uniform hammertone and antique surfaces can be achieved.

CERAFLOUR 968

Micronized, PTFE-modified polyethylene wax for powder coatings. Creates fine-textured, scratch-resistant and satin-gloss surfaces.

CERAFLOUR 969

Micronized, PTFE-modified polyethylene wax for powder coatings. Creates fine-textured, scratch-resistant and matt surfaces.
