Improving soiling resistance in coatings using silica particles

Green blue paint

Colloidal Silica's Bindzil CC particles just earned a place in the spotlight in Swedish media for contributing to our customers' success through dirt pick-up resistance and increased hardness in coatings.

The reason why objects get painted is to protect them from environmental influences like humidity, mold growth, sunlight, dust etc. But - they also are painted for decorative reasons,  to give them that nice appearance.

To protect and maintain the paint quality it is necessary to develop a paint which can withstand all these environmental factors. Why? Because a better resistance results in less frequent repainting, cleaning or maintenance which saves material (e.g. solvents and biocides) as well as money.
