The new CoatOSil FLX coating modifier can reportedly improve coating flexibility while also maintaining or even enhancing corrosion resistance and gloss retention, helping to mitigate embrittlement issues that can plague present silane-cured hybrid coating technologies. With this new technology, coating formulators may no longer have to sacrifice critical properties when seeking increased flexibility in a coating.
In addition, the improved flexibility can produce a stronger, more protective coating, and the greater resistance to UV degradation allows the coating to look new longer. The patent-pending technology can also help improve formulating latitude. CoatOSil FLX coating modifier may be considered for low-VOC and HAPs coating systems.
