Clariant AdditivesAs the coatings industry continues to grow in China, which is experiencing a strong recovery in the wake of the pandemic, there is growing demand for coating applications that offer higher efficiency and better performance for export and construction industries. To meet such demands, Clariant unveiled a new portfolio of industrial coatings and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) free additives at ChinaCoat 2023.

“At ChinaCoat 2023 we showcased our new high-performance additives that address various formulation challenges in the fields of 1K acrylic “direct to metal”, or DTM, and 2k-epoxy primers or mid-layers, found in applications such as container coatings, transportation and construction equipment. For paint manufacturers of water-based industrial coatings, we offer multi-functional WDAs with higher flexibility according to their requirements,” said Sebastian Prock, Clariant’s head of marketing, industrial applications, BU Care Chemicals.

To make it easier to find the right additives Clariant launched a new Chinese version of its ClariCoat digital platform, which was also on display at the expo. This web application is designed for paints and coatings specialists who face challenges with their paint formulations and provides customised solutions for a holistic range of performance criteria such as liquid paint stability, workability and sustainability. The digital tool is particularly valuable for formulators who want advice on additives as the shift towards water-based paint systems continues in the industry.

In addition to performance and sustainability, compliance with regulatory requirements is growing concern for the coatings industry as a whole. For example, the use of PTFE in ink formulations and coating applications has been regulated in the EU, the US and Japan, creating the need for PTFE-free alternatives. Clariant has a growing portfolio of PTFE-free solutions for construction, furniture and other applications. It’s Ceridust 8170 M is a PTFE-free texturing agent for powder coatings that helps reduce energy consumption during the powder coating extrusion process and complies with EU’s REACH legislation.  

Along with abrasion resistance, the Ceridust 8170 M and Ceridust 8330 are bio-based additives made from a renewable resource and exhibit rub resistance properties for coatings and inks when compared to wax-based products.
