Common silicon carbide powders include green silicon carbide powder and black silicon carbide powder. They have good insulation properties, long service life, and low production cost, so they are widely used. In fact, silicon carbide powder also plays a certain role in paints and coatings.
Silicon carbide powder can be used in paints and coatings. It is commonly used in: mixed paints, primers, anti-rust paints, anti-corrosion paints, road paints, square paints, ship paints and other paints and coatings. It can reduce resin and dispersion in paints and coatings. The amount of agent used. It can not only play the role of filling and compatibilization, thickening and matting, but also improves paint fineness, leveling performance, paint film hardness, and arc insulation resistance.
In the coating and paint industry, the silicon carbide micropowder of Haiyang Powder exhibits characteristics such as fine particle size, high hardness, good suspension and dispersion, low oil absorption, and high resistivity. Based on these characteristics, carbonization is added to coatings and paints. Microsilica powder helps improve the corrosion resistance, wear resistance, insulation and high temperature resistance of coatings.
Have you heard that silicon carbide powder can be added and used in paints and coatings? Next, let me tell you about the role of silicon carbide powder in paints and coatings:
1. Small amount of resin/high potential for adding amount: Since the spherical shape has a specific surface area in any shape, the demand for resin is small. The accumulation of particles has also been improved. The wide particle size distribution of silicon carbide powder allows small microspheres to fill the gaps between larger microspheres. The result is: high input levels, high solids content, lower VOCs and reduced use of other ingredients.
2. Low viscosity/improved mobility: Unlike irregular-shaped particles, silicon carbide powder rolls easily between each other. This makes the system using silicon carbide powder have lower viscosity and better fluidity. Furthermore, the sprayability of the system is improved.
