Axcentive in Coatings
The coatings market has been an important market for Axcentive® since many years. The existing range of Specialty additives, branded KETJENFLEX®, brings enhanced adhesion, gloss, and flexibility and film formation.
Axcentive® now enters the market for Smart and Functional coatings with a new line of resins which enable coating formulators to achieve new advanced functions in their coating systems, such as easy to clean, self-cleaning and ultra-hardness.
Arno Schut, Innovation Manager at Axcentive, comments:
“Innovation drives Axcentive’s growth in Smart and Functional coatings. Buoyed by the success of our participation The European Coatings Show in 2017, we decided to focus on the American market this year by exhibiting at ACS 2018. Advanced markets such as targeted at ACS start to show strong interest in smart and functional coatings and we can provide them the technologies to pursue that route.”
Arno continues: “Target applications would be high performance top coatings, such as used in industrial, protective, coil, marine, transportation, heavy duty or automotive coating applications but also self-cleaning architectural coatings.
One highlighted product is our EXOCOAT Clearview that acts as permanent water and rain repellent on automotive windshields; popular as well are our easy-to-clean and anti-graffiti technologies aimed at protective and transportation coatings.
We look forward to meeting formulators and other coating experts and share information about this new range”.
The Axcentive® team will be pleased to discuss further about the functionalities and advanced properties of this new line of Raw Materials at at American Coatings Show 2018, which will be held from April 10th to 12th, 2018, at the Indianapolis Convention Centre, USA. Booth #514.
