Resiflow PV-60 is a general purpose flow control agent for general industrial powder coatings. The material is based on a liquid acrylic polymer that has been converted into a free flowing powder by adsorption onto silica-type filler. For best results, Resiflow PV-60 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, and this results in a uniform system. Surface defects such as orange peel, craters, pinholes, and other imperfections can be reduced or eliminated by incorporating 1 – 2% of Resiflow PV-60 into powder coating formulations. As with any raw material, laboratory evaluation is recommended for each formulation to determine the best processing method and the optimum concentration of the additive.
