XG607C Matting Additive Formulation

The reaction percentage of this matting agent with TGIC is 20:1 and it it suitable for 5-25% gloss on 60°.

 

Select the gloss range you need according to the table below:

Dosage Gloss range Description
3% >   No matting will achieve Dosage less than 3% is not recommended
3% 40-50%
4% 30-40%
5 % 20-30%
5% < 

Dosage more than 5% might damage the paint surface.
  • The table below is not certain, the degree of certain gloss also depends on the resin.
  • The epoxy equivalent should be in the range of 750 – 800. Gloss will change according to the epoxy equivalent.

*The amount of resin is 60% of the total formula.

formula

For example, if it is intended to achieve (20 to 30%) gloss in a formulation with TGIC polyester resin, bellow steps should be taken:

  1. Total amount of resin: 60 Wt%
  2. Dosage of matting agent: 5% (according to desired gloss)
  3. Type of resin: 93/7 polyester resin (SJ4ET))
  4. Due to the fact that this matting agent reacts with TGIC the TGIC in the formulation should be increased by one unit for every 10 unit of the matting agent.
  5. Calculated total amount of resin is 55.8% (60*0.93 = 55.8).
  6. Therefore, the total amount of TGIC will be 4.7  (4.2 + 0.5 Reaction with matting agent = 4.7)
