Deuteron SO 300 is a fine dispersion of an elastomer in water. It imparts coatings with a “soft touch” surface, even if the binder is not an especially soft or elastic type. At the same time it acts as a matting agent. The effect depends on the dosage and the system’s other components, particularly the binder. Deuteron SO 300 is temperature resistant up to 160 °C.
The small particle size makes the product suitable for thin-film applications. Deuteron SO 300 contains no waxes and thus does not negatively affect the recoatability.
In 2-component lacquers, the inherent OH-functionality allows the product to be cross-linked in the coating matrix. This can lead to higher mechanical and chemical resistances, which are not attainable by conventional means of adjusting “soft touch” and matting.
Deuteron SO 300 is intended for all water-based lacquers, coatings and printing inks which have to offer a special feel and matting up to a “soft touch”. It can be used in systems of all ranges of film thickness. Deuteron SO 300 can be combined
with other organic matting agents, waxes and silicas.
