Matting agents

Polymethyl urea resin for matting of coated surfaces.

Our Deuteron and Pergopak matting agents are organic thermoset urea methanal polymers supplied in the form of finely ground powder. Because of the chemical and physical characteristics of this group of materials, no comparison can be made of their effects and they cannot simply replace silicate based matting agents. They nevertheless open up special, useable characteristics for the user. With their chemical character and their structure they are well suited as sole or additional matting agents in a wide range of coating materials. In paint and lacquering applications, the 6 available ground and sieved Deuteron and Pergopak versions cover a large number of possible uses.

Additives for perfect coating surfaces

In addition to our PMH additives in powder form, we offer the dispersion Deuteron MM677 for low-dust applications. Furthermore, some special wax compounds are available which are especially suitable for the matting of 100% UV systems. The Deuteron SO product range enables the creation of SOFT effects in binders which are not explicitly intended for this purpose.
