MODAFLOW® RESIN

1 of 10 products in this brand
MODAFLOW® RESIN is an acrylic flow modifier specifically formulated without the addition of silicone. It finds application in non-aqueous industrial coatings and powder coatings, where its primary functions include enhancing flow and leveling, reducing issues like pinholes, fisheyes, craters, and orange peel. This product contributes to improved substrate wetting and helps maintain or enhance substrate adhesion. Additionally, MODAFLOW® RESIN serves as a defoaming agent, aids in air release, and facilitates pigment dispersion. It is employed in various coating applications such as top coats, powder coatings, radiation-curable coatings, clearcoats, screen printing inks, inkjet inks, varnishes, flexography inks, solventborne coatings, gravure inks, and lithographic inks. Notably, it adheres to labeling claims of being VOC-free, APEO-free, and Tin-free.

Special Properties and Uses

Flow modifier for non-aqueous industrial coatings and powder coatings.
Using of Modaflow Resin in non-aqueous industrial coatings can significantly improve the properties of unmodified resins as follows:
- Improve flow and leveling
- Reduce pinholes, fisheyes, craters and orange peel
- Improve substrate wetting
- Maintain or improve substrate adhesion
- Defoam and aid in air release
- Facilitate pigment dispersion
Modaflow resin is also effective in eliminating pinholes and craters in epoxy, polyester, hybrid, urethane, and acrylic powder coatings.
Modaflow resin does not contain silicone ingredients. Modaflow Resin is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for indirect food contact applications under several parts of Title 21, Code of Federal Regulations. Details on specific coverage are available upon request.
Quantity to be added: 0,1 - 2,0 % on solid resin
