Inks & Coatings

Structuring and texturing agents are additives which modify the surface of coatings. These additives can create soft effects, antislip effects, friction reduction, frost effects, and antiblocking effects.

Deuteron ST Series Texturing Agents

The Deuteron ST series of structuring & texturing agents are organic, duroplastic, urea-methanal polymers with customizable particle sizes. See the key properties tab below to see the particle sizes for all ST grades.

In the cured state, the ST series possess higher hardness and abrasion resistance than traditional polyamide or polyurethane-based texturing agents.

The nature and degree of texturing achieved by the ST series products depends on the applied film thickness and the ratio of texturing agent to binder.

    Processing Notes
    The texturing agents can be mixed into the coating using a speed-stirrer or dissolver. The additional use of wetting agents is not required, even when used in water-based systems.
    The ST Series is stable to shear forces, but dispersion processes that induce a grinding effect must be avoided. In systems containing pigments, texturing agents must therefore be added after grinding the pigment.
