BYK-3938 P: a highly innovative, post-add additive for matting powder coatings – label-free
The matting of powder coatings constitutes a particular challenge for the coating industry. In contrast to liquid coatings, only minimum shrinkage occurs during the baking process, meaning that conventional matting is not possible with powder coatings. In order to achieve a matt finish, it is possible to reduce the gloss by mixing various binders that are incompatible with each other; alternatively, the incompatibility of binders and special hardeners is used for matting. However, some hardeners are subject to labeling. This ultimately results in labeling of the powder coatings.
