Inks and Coatings

Silicone additives have long been recognized as providing special properties to inks and coatings, including better slip, improved mar resistance, better levelling and foam control. Futhermore, because silicones are effective, even at very low concentrations, they are cost  effective, and thus widely used to optimize both product properties and processes.  Siltech’s additives for the Paint, Inks and Coatings industry now offers the formulator a wide range of silicone products to eliminate manufacturing problems and to enhance the final product’s performance. All Siltech products are manufactured to the highest standards to ensure that they meet our customers’ needs. Siltech also offers the flexibility of providing many of these products in either in an appropriate solvent, or in a neat form. They are designed to meet specific requirements of various coating systems such as solvent, water, solventless or energy curing.

Siltech’s additives cover the following functional classes:
Mar Resistance
Slip
Levelling, wetting, flow-out
Foam Control
Gloss
Prevention of Bernard Cells

In addition to the products offered here, Siltech also welcomes the opportunity of working with customers to develop unique silicones for specific applications.
