Abstract

New surface additive technology that, for the first time ever, does not just either maintain or decrease the surface energy of cured coatings as acrylate or silicone additives do, but increases the surface energy of cured coatings. The special modification means they orient at the liquid-air interface. Because of these factors, the wetting of the cured coating is increased as is the ability of improved adhesion of subsequent layers. One version of the additive is fluorine-free and silicone-free while the other is fluorine-free. The technology is 100% active substance that is easily incorporated.
