New Product Announcement: Paint Additive


In a recent press release, pigment manufacturer The Eckart Group announced a new additive reported to make anti-stick coatings scratch resistant.

According to Eckart, SynAdd also optimizes technical properties of coatings and plastics, such as weather and moisture resistance. In addition, the additive can be utilized for optical effects like matting and milky glass appearances.

The company notes that the additive powder is suitable for use in aqueous and solvent-based systems.

“In lacquers and plastics, the synthetic additive minimizes tiny cracks on the surface,” wrote Eckart in its release. “This improves the technical properties of the products. Anti-stick coatings, for example, become scratch-resistant as a result.

“Thanks to improved surface texture, the haptics of the products also benefit.”
