Powder paints

Powder paints are dry paint formulations which are prepared by mixing them with water shortly before application. They are used for both interior and exterior applications.

 

Powder paints are one of the new developments in the paints sector and currently only account for a small market share. They have a number of environmental and economical advantages such as free from solvents and preservatives, reduced weight and packaging volume, low-cost packaging and stability against frost during storage. Adding Tylose® to powder paints leads to an improved processing consistency.

 

Tylose® HS/H- and MH-types with a low or medium viscosity level are recommended.

Coating materials

Coating material

Due to numerous properties, Tylose® is an important component in water based paints. The most essential properties of Tylose® for the optimisation of coatings are; adjustment of consistency, water retention, binding power and the function as a protective colloid.
