Solus™ 2300

Solus™ 2300 is low molecular weight cellulose ester that is designed to optimize performance of high solids industrial coatings.
Product Overview
Solus™ 2300 is a performance additive designed to improve efficiency and performance of high solids, low VOC coatings. Low molecular weight polymers are commonly used in coatings that need to comply with VOC restrictions. One common issues faced with these high solids coatings is that they have a long dry to touch time. By substituting 5% of the polymer with Solus™ 2300 dry to touch times can be reduced in excess of 40%. In addition, inclusion of Solus™ 2300 into low VOC coatings helps to greatly decreases defects due to surface contamination and results in a reduction or rework and cost.
