Silicone Additive improves solvent borne paint/ink performance.

January 21, 2015

Dow Corning® 700P Additive enables formulators of white, pastel, and gray solvent borne paints and coatings to achieve stable titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment dispersions with reduced tendency toward flooding and floating as well as improved color consistency. This low-VOC, low-odor, siloxane-based pigment dispersant also improves gloss and reduces haze. Also, heat resistance reduces yellowing effect in formulations during heat-curing and when overbaked.

Foam Control Agents suit waterborne inks, OPVs, and paints.

December 3, 2014

Available in variety of formulations, Dow Corning® Anti-Foam Agents control foam while minimizing film defects, such as pinholes, cratering, and fisheyes. Dow Corning® 69 and 8590 are suited for most typical foaming issues, while Dow Corning® 8603 handles more challenging foam problems. Dow Corning® 8610 is intended for systems with higher co-solvent level, and Dow Corning® 8628 ensures optimal defoaming and compatibility. All dispersible silicone compounds and emulsions are APEO-free and low-VOC. Read More

Thermal Pads increase LED lamp/luminaire performance.

August 5, 2013

Dispensable Thermal Pads enable LED lamp and luminaire manufacturers to print layer of thermally conductive silicone compound in controllable thicknesses on complex substrate shapes while ensuring optimal thermal management properties. Applied via standard screen or stencil print processes or standard dispensing equipment, materials conform to complex/unevenly shaped substrates and cure in place. Thermal conductivity is 1.5 W/mK for TC-4015/-4016 and 2.5 W/mK for TC-4025/-4026. Read More

Siloxane Resin optimizes chemical resistance of coatings.

October 3, 2012

With Dow Corning® 3055 Resin, manufacturers can formulate low-VOC polysiloxane coatings with urethane, epoxy, polyester, alkyd, amine, and acrylic systems utilizing amine functionality. Liquid crosslinking resin does not require titanate/tin catalysts or ambient moisture to cure, and does not contribute to volatile by-products that can cause film stress and adhesion loss. Coatings formulated with Dow Corning® 3055 exhibit optimized chemical, thermal, UV, corrosion, and moisture resistance. Read More
