In building

Hydrophobic treatment

  • Control of the surface hydrophobicity and beading effects
  • Reduction of the water absorption

Substrate wetting

  • Improvement of the substrate and pore wetting
  • Prevention of pinholes, craters and other surface defects
  • Increase and improvement of the intercoat adhesion in multi-coat systems

Defoaming and deaerating

  • Foam prevention during pigment grinding and let-down
  • Defoaming during the application

Surface design

  • Prevention of orange peel effects
  • Improvement of the levelling and surface properties
  • Increase of the surface slip
  • Improvement of the scratch resistance
  • Control of the overcoatability


  • Targeted adjustment of the production and printing rheology
  • Improvement of the storability through reduced pigment and filler sedimentation
