DELTA-SC® 2034 is a silicone surface additive designed for substrate wetting, anti-cratering and levelling of the coatings. Due to the fluorocarbon modification, DELTA-SC® 2034 has very low surface tension and is extremely compatible with most paint systems, both water- and solvent-based industrial coatings.
Composition :Fluorocarbon containing organically modified siloxane
Specific gravity @ 20°C :ca. 0.98 g/cm3
Flashpoint :32 °C
Appearance :Clear colored, opalescent liquid
Active ingredients :52.5%
Applications and usage:
DELTA-SC® 2034 promotes substrate wetting and acts as an anti-cratering agent in solvent-based and aqueous coatings (cratering often caused by insufficient cleaning of the substrate or by particles of dirt or incompatible substances). DELTA-SC® 2034 improves surface smoothness and slip, and prevents floating.
The advantage of improved substrate wetting caused by reduced interfacial tension, also results in foam stabilization in some cases. It is therefore appropriate in such cases to incorporate a defoamer/anti-foam at the same time.
DELTA-SC® 2034 can be added at any stage of manufacture as long as sufficient shear forces are applied to ensure uniform distribution of the additive.
