DELTA-SC®2239 is a silicone-based levelling additive with defoaming properties. It improves the surface properties of solvent- based and solvent-free coatings with particular emphasis upon levelling. With a slight influence on surface tension, DELTA-SC®2239 can impart defoaming properties to the system. It is soluble in aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, esters and ketones but insoluble in water. Sometimes it is necessary to dilute this 100% active material with a compatible solvent to improve its compatibility in a particular system. DELTA-SC®2239 is suitable for coatings and composite.
Composition :Solvent-free modified polysiloxane
Specific gravity @ 20°C :ca. 0.93 g/cm3
Flashpoint :100 °C
Appearance :Opalescent liquid
Active ingredients :>98%
Applications and usage:
DELTA-SC®2239 improves levelling and surface smoothness, increases slip and mar-resistance and avoids the formation of Bénard cells (anti-floating effect).
It is especially recommended for the following applications:
● Acid-curable or polyurethane wood finishes
● Stoving enamels based on alkyd, acrylic or polyester resins
● Self-levelling epoxy flooring compounds
● UV-curable paper lacquers
It should be added during the final thinning. For ease of handling, dilute to 10% in aromatics or mineral spirits.

DELTA-SC®2239 is an organically modified polysiloxane possessing excellent compatibility with a wide range of systems. It gives reduction of surface tension resulting in improved levelling and spread of thecompound, with no migration of the additive. It gives good de-aeration properties during processing and application.
DELTA-SC®2239 can be used in PVC plastisols and unsaturated polyesters (glass fiber reinforced), as well as solvent-free epoxy systems (e.g. flooring, conductor plates) and polyurethanes.
DELTA-SC®2239 should be added to the resin prior to processing and addition of the other components, although addition to the final product is also possible.
