Specialty Additives Update
While you’re enjoying all that Indianapolis has to offer during this year’s American Coatings Show (ACS), May 7–10, be sure to hear about Air Products’ newest additive solutions for coatings formulators.

Stop by our booth 1911 to learn about Air Products’ broad range of high performance surfactants, defoamers, pigment grind aids and dispersants, as well as our epoxy curing agents and modifiers. Many factors need to be considered when selecting additives for your formulation—our experienced team can help you choose the ones that can best fit your needs. Count on our products to help you meet environmental trends and regulations without sacrificing product performance.

You can learn more about our new, environmentally friendly products in the Product Presentation Area of the show—here’s what we’ll be talking about:

Plus, be sure to check out our paper “New Deaerators for Airless Spray Applied Water-based Coatings” on May 9th from 11:00–11:30 a.m. This paper explores how deaerator composition and structural parameters can be controlled to “dial-in” deaerator effectiveness and compatibility. The paper also introduces new zero-VOC deaerators designed to eliminate both macrofoam and microfoam without generating surface defects so formulators can improve the coating performance on different substrates.
