SIDISHIELD® C25 is a specially designed light-coloured coating additive consisting of spherical, submicron particles of amorphous silicon dioxide. The nature of the product allows excellent dispersion of these particles in the coating polymer matrix and combined with the low surface area it is possible to achieve higher solid content coatings, maintaining good levelling properties with abrasion and scratch resistance.
SIDISHIELD® C25 has been designed for usage in all types of coating systems: solvent free, waterborne, and solvent based, including UV and powder coatings. SIDISHIELD® C25 can, due to its hardness and physical shape, act as a dispersing agent and is also used as a spacer in pigment concentrates.
Recommended addition level is 1 - 2% of total formulation.
The product is recommended to be stored in a covered dry place, protected from direct UV light. Recommended storage temperature between +5 ºC and +40 ºC (+45ºF and +104ºF) . It’s important that the minimum temperature is > 5ºC (9ºF) above the dew point. Recommended relative humidity < 85%.
We recommend that the product should be used within 2 years from production date.
