AERODISP® 1030 is a 30% dispersion of AEROSIL® R 9200 in 1-methoxy-2-propyl acetate (MPA)
Scope of Application
Evonik has developed a new generation of fumed, hydrophobic and structure-modified silicas to improve the scratch resistance of UV-curing, High-Solid and conventional solvent-based two component paint systems. Among these is the most recently presented AEROSIL® R 9200, which is described in detail in Technical Information No. 1284. In order to improve the scratch resistance of a top coat and to keep the desired optical properties, it is necessary to disperse the structure-modified AEROSIL® in a concentration of 5 to 15% (computed on solid binder) in a bead mill in combination with fine (approx. 0.5 mm) Zr02 beads. To make it easier for our customers to handle this innovative fumed silica Evonik developed a user-friendly dispersion. The result is AERODISP® 1030, a 30% dispersion of AEROSIL® R 9200 in 1-methoxy-2-propyl acetate (MPA). Instructions for useThe dispersion AERODISP® 1030 is quite easy to use: Simply combine with the resin and other paint ingredients while agitating, with a dissolver for example. Stir the dispersion prior to use. As it is the case for all dispersions based on fine particles, it is necessary to be careful that no coarse particles, such as solids dried to the container rim, get into the dispersion when the container is opened.
