Wetting and Levelling Agents
Tri-iso distributes a wide range wetting and levelling agents that allow formulators to produce high performance coatings. Wetting agents are employed to ensure that the coating uniformly coats the substrate. Poor substrate wetting can lead to loss of adhesion and total failure of the coating. Selection of the proper wetting agent allows a coating to penetrate into the nooks and crannies of the substrate, increasing the contact surface area, and allowing the coating to "lock-in" once it fully hardens and dries. Levelling agents are employed to ensure that the coating has a uniform smooth surface, free of orange peel and other coating surface defects.
