Canadian Finishing and Coatings Manufacturing

ShanghaiEvonik’s Coating Additives business line is increasing the production capacity of several critical additives by producing them in Shanghai for the first time.

These additives belong to the TEGO Glide and TEGO Wet product lines. The “significant” capacity increase will ensure reliable availability not only for Asian customers but for coating manufacturers around the globe.

The additives are now being manufactured at Evonik’s multiuser site in Shanghai in addition to existing production facilities in Germany.

“This means higher supply security for all our customers worldwide as well as reduced lead times for our Asian customers,” says Gaetano Blanda, head of the business line. “Furthermore, the capacity increase allows for quicker reaction to changing market demands.”

Product properties and product quality remain the same as those products manufactured in Germany, the company stresses.

The TEGO Glide series consists of slip and flow additives which improve the flow, leveling and optical appearance of the coating. Furthermore, they offer anti-cratering as well as slip and anti-blocking effects. The main application areas are architectural coatings, wood coatings and printing inks.

The TEGO Wet series comprises substrate wetting additives that enable uniform wetting for coatings and printing inks, even on very-low-energy or contaminated surfaces. Defects in the coating surface (such as cratering and poor leveling) are minimized or improved. Typical application areas are architectural, wood, industrial, and plastic coatings.

Evonik says the Coatings Additives business line continuously evaluates its product portfolio to improve supply security and supply reliability. Several other additives are under evaluation to be manufactured in Shanghai as well.
