The OpTiMat® range of matting agents achieves a deep matt finish at very low loading levels.
3-D structure for highly diffused light scattering
The OpTiMat® range of matting agents is derived from selected crude ore which is refined and engineered to give a product with a tight particle size distribution and distinctive 3D-shaped particles.
This 3D structure results in highly diffused light scattering which produces very low gloss and sheen levels in coatings.
OpTiMat® has distinctive 3-D shaped particles
OpTiMat® products are so effective that as little as 3% by weight in a matt paint formulation can give 85° sheen below 1.
Low loaded coatings using fine particle size OpTiMat® have a smooth surface texture. Mineral hardness contributes to excellent burnish and scratch resistance. Additional benefits can be seen in high paint whiteness and increased mudcrack resistance.
