Orgasol® benefits in coatings and graphic arts

Orgasol® strengthens and improves abrasion and scratch resistance of the coatings and inks. Orgasol® is also used to control gloss or to impart specific textured finishes.

High abrasion and scratch resistance

Orgasol® polyamide powders, provide a powerful combination of abrasion and scratch resistance and an improvement in product durability.

Gloss control and mar resistance

In most of formulations, Orgasol® powders provide matte-to-satin effects, without the drawbacks of increased in viscosity and a higher sensitivity to scratches and abrasion common to matting agents like silica. It also avoids haze, settlement and guaranties mar resistance.

Texturing effects

Orgasol® powders can also be used as texturing agent. Available in a range of particle sizes (from 5 to 60 microns), Orgasol® powders can impart textures from smooth to rough by modifying the ratio of particle size to coating thickness. Thus, the spherical shape of the particles and the very narrow particle size distribution of Orgasol® powders impart very specific regular textures combining pleasant hand touch as well as anti-slip properties.

Lubrication

Adding Orgasol® powder decreases coating's coefficient of friction thanks to the lubricating effect of polyamide and the spherical shape of the particles. An advantage of Orgasol® is that it can be processed at high temperature - a great asset in rubber coating.

Formulation: 2K polyurethane water based formulation

Flexibility

Orgasol® thermoplastic additive used in a thermoset system can act as a toughening agent, increasing the flexibility of the coating and its resistance to crack propagation.

Low impact on viscosity

Orgasol® powders bring improvement without bringing a negative effect on viscosity and, consequently, on process ability. This is especially important in 100% solid UV curable formulations.

Recoat ability

Orgasol® can be used in multiple layers coating, such as in flooring.
