IMercure™ X10: An Environment-Friendly Wood Coating Additive

IMercure™ X10 improves the performance of UV curable wood coating.

Improvements in mechanical properties, such as modulus, strength and hardness can be seen without significant compromise to other aspects of the coating, such as clarity, haze and resistance to scratching. IMercure™ X10 also contributes to matting control, reducing gloss level and maintaining the macro surface smoothness of the film.

Partial replacement of resins with IMercure™ X10, an alumino-silicate additive, provides the possibility of cost reduction and environmental benefits, while guaranteeing original, high quality appearance and performance.
