Resiflow PL-200 is noted for its superior flow and leveling characteristics, excellent recoatability and intercoat adhesion properties, all of which are essential attributes for powder coating primers. Surface defects such as orange peel, craters, pinholes, and other imperfections can be reduced or eliminated by incorporating 0.7-1.5% of Resiflow PL-200 into pigmented powder coating formulations. It is not recommended for use in clears. This product is widely used and known for its suitability and reliable performance across the spectrum of binder chemistries including polyesters, polyurethanes, hybrids, epoxies, and acrylics. For best results, Resiflow PL-200 should be dry-blended with other coating raw materials, then homogenized in a heated extruder. The active ingredient is released and homogenized with the other components during extrusion, which results in a uniform system. Resiflow PL-200 is based on the liquid acrylic polymer product Resiflow LV that has been converted into free-flowing powder by adsorption onto silica-type filler. This active ingredient is also available in three different polyester masterbatches for powder coating formulations that require the flow control agent to be predispersed for optimal uniformity and for applications where silica supported additives may not be suitable. As with any silica supported flow control agent, Resiflow PL-200 should be thoroughly evaluated to determine the best processing method and the optimum concentration of the additive, suitability for the application, as well as to test compatibility and recoat adhesion.
