Orgasol® powder in sport floorings
All sports flooring (wood, PVC, polyuerethane resins, etc.) must withstand abrasion and/or scratches while maintaining cleanability and anti-slip properties.
Due to the high traffic to which sports flooring is exposed, there is a need to improve abrasion resistance and cleanability while maintaining an anti-slip surface.
Orgasol® additive can achieve these three porperty requirements. Orgasol® powder is often used to reach a combination of abrasion/scratch resistance with anti-slippery properties in matte formulations. Orgasol® powder also improves anti-slip properties of wet flooring and improves cleanablility due to it spherical particle shape.
Orgasol® powder is also used as a matting agent. Unlike silica, the gloss control property of Orgasol® powder has no impact on the viscosity level of 100% solid UV curable formulations.
Orgasol® powder is easily dispersed, especially in polyurethane, epoxy whiwh are formulations most widely used in the sports flooring market. Orgasol® powder can be used in solvent based, water based and 100% solid UV/EB curable formulations.
