TEGO News for the American Coatings Show 2014

After launch in Europe the following products will be featured from Evonik Industries at the American Coatings Show in Atlanta:

TEGO® Twin 4200 is the new universal substrate wetting additive for waterborne wood coatings, industrial coatings and printing inks, which can also be used in solventborne and even UV coatings. In addition to outstanding wetting and anti-cratering properties, TEGO® Twin 4200 provides no foam stabilization.

SILIKOPHEN® AC 900 and SILIKOPHEN® AC 1000 were designed for the high temperature applications of industrial objects, muffler coatings and oven coatings. Due to their ambient temperature curing capabilities, a feature highly coveted by manufacturers, these resins permit energy-saving coating application of large objects which would otherwise prove difficult in a more traditional oven-cure.

All of this technical information and much more of the region NAFTA can be found on the English homepage under and, as of April 1, in Spanish as well.

Visit our experts at the Evonik booth (#1707) at the 2014 American Coatings Show, held April 8-10 in Atlanta, Ga.
