EDAPLAN® LA 452 is a yellow liquid wetting and leveling agent for aqueous systems. EDAPLAN® LA 452 reduces the surface tension of aqueous systems without increasing
the foam formation. Thus substrate wetting, leveling and gloss are improved. EDAPLAN® LA 452 is free of silicone and has no adverse effects on recoatability. This additive is compatible with all common resin systems. Advantages of using EDAPLAN® LA 452 include gloss improvement and reduction of haze, prevention of surface defects like craters and Bénard cells, improvement of substrate wetting, no increase in foam, and good recoatability. Main application areas include architectural coatings, wood and furniture coatings, automotive OEM and repair coatings, industrial coatings, and printing inks and overprint varnishes.
