In standard paint and plaster formulations silicones are typically used to adjust the hydrophobic properties of the coating material.
For years, the combination of polysiloxanes and silicone resins in paints has been regarded as state of the art for excellent water protection. Polysiloxanes are mainly responsible for the early water resistance and the beading effect. The silicone resins additionally reduce the water absorption and have a much better water vapour permeability compared to organic resins.
VARIPHOB® HY 200 and VARIPHOB HY® 300 can be used to create formulations containing only one product as a hydrophobic component. This simplifies recipes and reduces the number of the used raw materials.
VARIPHOB HY 200
VARIPHOB HY 300
HANSA ADD 5435 | Defoamer
AGOCEL I-115 D | Rheological additive
CALOR SIL | IR-Absorber for “warm white” effect
Depending on the final specification and level of quality different dosages of the hybrids are recommended:
1,0 - 2,0 % for a hydrophobic paint
4,0 - 5,0 % for a high performance paint
7,0 % for a premium silicone resin paint
