DOWSIL™ 8526 Additive

  • Overview

    An easy-to-use, high performance silicone polyether additive that gives improved leveling and slip in waterborne solvent based and UV curing formulations at low addition levels.

    Improved Leveling

    Increased Slip

    Versatility

    High-Performance Leveling and Slip Agent for Waterborne, Solventborne and Radiation-Curable Coatings

    Ensuring high performance without proliferating raw materials can be a challenge for paint, ink and coating formulators. This has created a need for products that can be used in solventborne, waterborne and radiation-curable coatings and are compatible with a broad range of binder types. To meet this need, Dow Consumer Solutions has extended its range of leveling and slip agents with DOWSIL™ 8526 Additive.
