Texturing Additives for Inks and Coatings
Shamrock Technologies offers a variety of texturing additives to provide the perfect combination of texture, and
compatibility. Some benefits of using textures include a decorative appearance, anti-skid, matting, feel/hapticity, water repellency and abrasion resistance. Different texture additives offer different types of effect and benefits.
High Molecular Weight Polyolefins (HMWPE)
For air dry and Baked Coatings requiring nonskid or high COF, smooth or soft feel and mar/abrasion resistance, we recommend the use of High Molecular Weight PE. This is recommended for Screen inks, Decorative, General Industrial and Coil Coatings.
