Description

GP-905 is a 100% active polypropylene oxide (PO) modified dimethylpolysiloxane block copolymer which is designed to improve the quality and performance of solvent-based, baked-on industrial finishes. The combination of polysiloxane and polypropylene oxide segments provides excellent lubricity and low surface tension which improves wetting, leveling and flow of solvent-based coatings. GP-905 contains Si-O-C bonds between silicone and polyol blocks and may be affected by hydrolysis in some aqueous systems. Some of the special properties of GP-905 are listed below:

  • Low Surface Tension
  • Excellent Lubricity
  • Thermal Stability

Applications

In addition to a coating additive, GP-905 is also recommended for evaluation in polyurethane foam systems - as a profoamer additive. Other applications include textile and thread lubricants, internal lubricant for plastics and base material for aqueous defoaming agents. Other applications include the following:

  • Thread Lubricant
  • Pigment Dispersant
  • Wetting Agent-Solvent Systems
  • Leveling & Flow Control Agent-Solvent Coatings
  • Urethane Bubble Release Additive (Coatings)
  • Release Agent
  • Antifoam - Aqueous Systems
  • Polyurethane Foam Additive (Profoamer)

Processing and Safety Guidelines

GP-905 has been formulated to be compatible with solvent based coatings and adhesives. GP-905 has a very low order of toxicity, but should still be handled with all precautions common to the use of any industrial chemical product. Consult Safety Data Sheet for additional details.
