General information on ACEMATT®
For today’s demanding market it is of high importance for the manufacturer to be able to easily and formulate / produce coatings and paints passing from high gloss to matt finish.
Evonik’s silica-based Matting Agents are able to change the surface structure in such a way that the light hitting the treated surface is defined gritted. The matting particles, breaking the surface of the coating, are invisible to the human eye. Neither the colour of the coatings nor the surface under a clear coating is significantly changed.
Thanks to a fine matt coating film, often only visible for an expert, objects, like the dashboard in the car, the surface of the dining table or the perfume flacon, can obtain an elegant velvet shine and a pleasant touch.
But this fine roughness is not only providing the surface with a comfortable touch, but also with a noble satin-gloss, which is very popular by e.g. parquet floors.
Choosing a matt surface is not only an aesthetic decision, but is also a good choice to avoid dangerous reflexions in building facades or industrial floorings.
ACEMATT® is the matting solution in any coatings formulation, from water-based to UV-curing.
