Gloss

GLOSS
  • IS topcoats show minimal reduction of gloss at levels as high as 10%
  • Allows for use in topcoats or DTM
  • Can add functionality to decorative coats

Incorporation of a traditional corrosion inhibitor reduces gloss levels in coatings (Graph 1)
Similar levels of Inhibispheres® have a negligible effect on gloss (Graph 2)
The level of Inhibispheres® require for effective corrosion control has no effect on gloss (Graph 3)

INHIBISPHERES®

FUTURE PROOF YOUR COATINGS

Inhibispheres® are submicron ceramic particles which can provide specific functionalities to classic coating formulations. Active materials, such as corrosion inhibitors, can be incorporated inside the ‘Smart Particles’, which can then simply be mixed into a paint or coating formulation. The particles are mechanically resistant, can survive paint formulation processes (e.g. mixing, grinding, extrusion) and will not adversely affect the mechanical properties of the coating.
