API-188

Nonionic emulsion of polyethylene resin that will increase abrasion resistance, strength and durability in a wide range of coatings and finishes.

Characteristics

  • Compatible with a wide range of resins systems and catalysts.
  • Provides scuff, scratch and mar resistant in water-based ink and coating formulations (at 5% to 10% loading levels).
  • Increases tear and tensile strength when applied to textile substrates.

Application

Floor finishes are typically 75% – 85% acrylic polymer. Finishes typically
contain wax emulsions (5% – 10%), alkali soluble resins (5% – 15%) and
plasticizer (1% – 3%). Wetting agents, co-solvents, defoamers and preservatives
make up the balance of the finish. All of the components play an important
role in producing a safe, attractive, easy to use and easy to remove finish. API188 is an important component that will provide durability, mar resistance
and a safe coefficient of friction (0.5 or greater).
