Specialty Additives Update

February 2015

It's not only what you add.
It's who.

It's not only what you add. It's who.Air Products’ specialty additives come with a special ingredient—the chemists behind them. We’ve been studying the unique challenges of water-based systems for over 40 years. That experience enables us to work hand-to-hand with formulators of coatings to develop solutions for the challenges of today, and anticipate the needs of tomorrow. Additionally, as pioneers in the shift to waterborne technology more than 40 years ago, we have unparalleled understanding of how to optimize performance of compliant coatings with our line of specialty additives. Whether you are looking for defect-free surface coatings, adhesion to a difficult substrate or improved color and rub, and weathering resistance, our growing range of wetting agents, dispersants and defoamers can help. They are proven performers in a multitude of industrial and specialty coatings including, but not limited to automotive, architectural, OEM, industrial and maintenance, paper, plastic, wood, and metal.

And we’re available to put everything we’ve learned to work for you.
