Solus™ can provide aesthetic, performance and financial benefits to users.
It can ensure the coating remains smooth after application and during curing while avoiding imperfections such as orange peel, fish eyes, craters and reticulation.
Solus™ can be used in the barrier coat to protect the plastic from strong solvents in subsequent coating layers. It can also be used for aluminum flake orientation in acrylic metallic lacquers for both plastic and metal electronic casings. Since many consumer electronics are made of a combination of metal and plastic, manufacturers can maintain consistent appearance. Clear systems yield hard, brilliant films. Pigmented systems are bright and show good gloss retention.
Solus can reduce cost by ensuring even flake distribution and alignment, requiring fewer coating corrections. Improved flake alignment means the formulator can use fewer flakes, which contributes to reduced costs.
