Enabling Anti-Stain Optimization
As aesthetics remain a priority for consumers, coating formulators are tasked with delivering products that address expectations for attractive surface finishes and designs. Today’s coatings companies must deliver superior anti-stain properties while balancing cost and performance requirements. At Solvay, we optimize anti-stain coatings with our performance additives, stabilizers and perfluoropolyether polymer technology.
Solvay’s Portfolio for Anti-Stain Coatings
Solvay’s broad portfolio includes a range of innovative solutions for anti-stain coatings for today’s most challenging stain-resistance issues. Polymer-based additives such as Hylar® PVDF and Diofan® PVDC enhance the performance of anti-stain coatings by offering excellent protective properties. Performance additives such as Rhodoline® and the Sipomer® lines of specialty monomers are known for improving the anti-stain characteristics of coatings. Additionally, Fluorolink® PFPE products deliver excellent oil, water and stain repellency due to their low friction rates, enhanced chemical resistance, and reduced surface energy.
