    Discover How to Manufacture Higher Performance Paints and Wood Coatings

    With DOWSIL™ 52 Additive formulators now have the unique capability of fine-tuning a wide array of properties—from slip to scratch resistance and more. Controlling slip while improving scratch and abrasion resistance, and without negatively affecting other important coating benefits, has been difficult to accomplish up to now. With Dow Consumer Solutions' cost effective silicone additives, you can reduce wear & friction to achieve high performance abrasion resistant coating formulations.

    DOWSIL 52 Additive can change the way you think about formulating. This unique additive is an ultra-high molecular weight silicone dispersion engineered to use in industrial waterborne wood coatings, wood trim, inks, overprint varnishes and interior/exterior paints. This additive is easily incorporated during let-down and post-addition production stages at very low levels, allowing you to achieve good cost-in-use benefits.

    Advantages you’ll notice…

    • Customizable slip performance 
    • Effective alone or with wax emulsions 
    • No impact on current properties 
    • Enhanced scratch and abrasion resistance 
    • Good sandability and recoatability 
    • Improved anti-blocking 
    • Use in interior and exterior coatings 
    • Compatible with multiple formulations 
    • Easy incorporation and dispersion 
    • Highly effective at low addition levels 
    • Good hand feel

    Get Better Benefits When Used Alone or with Wax Emulsions

    Testing reveals that DOWSIL 52 Additive when used with wax emulsions shows a significant improvement in slip over the samples containing only wax emulsions.
