Evonik's ACEMATT® range comprise a series of highly efficient matting agents. These products are based on spherical particles of silica and silica-organic hybrid chemistries. Tight particle size distributions ensure a homogenous appearance and surface finish.

Formulation latitude is broad due to the extensive range of products. There are grades which can be easily incorporated into water and solvent based coatings respectively. Speciality grades for matting non-reducible coating systems also exist. ACEMATT® is easy to incorporate and can be post added to adjust gloss levels.

Coatings formulated with ACEMATT® exhibit good clarity. Surface definition can be retained when substrate impression is important. Options for adjusting surface feel and roughness are also available. Enhanced flow and levelling of the coating is obseved due to the spherical nature of these particles.

Features


    • Spherically shaped silica and silica-organic hybrid particles

    •  A range of particle size distributions are available for different film thicknesses and optical/haptic effects

    • Tight control of size distribution ensures no coarse particles

    • Extensive product portfolio for different coating systems

Benefits


    • Easy to use in a wide variety of coating formulations. High shear forces not required and short dispersion times

    • Post adjustment of gloss levels is possible. Easy to add in the latter steps of the production process

    • High matting efficiency to achieve deep matte and excellent surface finish. Low addition levels required. Homogenous surface appearance due to tight particle size distribution

    • Adjustable surface texture possible due to the variety of particle size options

    • Low impact on viscosity with loading and good flow behaviour in the coating due to the spherical particle shape

Typical Applications


    • Coil coatings - homogenous matting effect with low impact on viscosity easy to attain

    • Wood coatings - floor, furniture and cabinets can be matted with excellent clarity and in-can stability. Coatings benefit from improved flow and levelling

    • UV coatings - Matting off water and solvent based UV coatings can be attained, as well as 100% systems. Minimal impact on UV transmittance, even in thick films

    • Soft feel coatings - high matting and clarity possible without affecting the surface impression

    • Decorative coatings - high efficiency matting agent for decorative coatings. Excellent in-can stability and low impact on viscosity. High clarity of the underlying coating or substrate
