- 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.
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).
