Evonik’s Coating Additives Group Gears Up for ACS 2014


At this year’s ACS in Atlanta, GA, Evonik’s TEGO group will feature three new product rollouts and debut the Spanish version of their website.

TEGO Twin 4200 is the new universal substrate wetting additive for waterborne wood coatings, industrial coatings and printing inks, which can also be used in solventborne and UV cured applications. It provides outstanding wetting and anti-cratering properties without stabilizing foam. TEGO Twin 4200’s 100% active matter content allows for its use in modern zero VOC formulations.

SILIKOPHEN AC 900 and SILIKOPHEN AC 1000 were designed for the high temperature applications of industrial objects, muffler coatings and oven coatings. Due to their ambient temperature curing capabilities, these resins permit energy-saving coating application of large objects which would otherwise prove difficult in a traditional bake-cure system.

All of this information and much more can be found on the English homepage and, as of April 1, in Spanish as well. The consistent growth of Mexico’s coatings industry coupled with the ever-increasing prevalence of the Spanish speaking population in the US created an opportunity for TEGO to broaden their communication efforts.
