XG610B Matting Additive Formulation

The reaction percentage of this matting agent with Epoxy Resin is 2:1 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% 15-25%
4% 5-15%
5 % 5% >
5% < 

Dosage more than 5% might damage the paint surface.
  • The above table 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 (5 to 15%) gloss in a formulation with Hybrid Polyester Resin (60-40), bellow steps should be taken:

  1. Total amount of resin: 60 Wt%
  2. Dosage of matting agent: %4 (according to desired gloss)
  3. Type of resin: 60/40 polyester resin (SJ5A)
  4. Consider 8 units of epoxy to react with 4 units of matting agent
  5. The remaining amount of total resin is % 52 (60-8=52)
  6. Residual amount of polyester and epoxy resin will be 31.2 and 20.8, respectively.
  7. Therefore, the total amount of epoxy % 8.28  (% 8 reaction with matting agent + % 20.8= % 28.8 ).
