Description

GP-218 is a 100% active polypropylene oxide 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 pendant polypropylene oxide segments provides excellent lubricity and low surface tension, which improves the wetting, leveling and flow of solvent-based coatings.  GP-218 contains stable ≡ Si – C ≡ bonds between silicone and polyol blocks and exhibits excellent resistance to hydrolysis.
