Product Application:

UV system

    Silok®8488 provides excellent leveling,fullness slipping, wear resistance and good shrinkage resistance properties for UV varnish, solvent-based UV, non-solvent-based UV and UV paint system.

Solvent-borne coatings

   Silok®8488 is applied to all solvent-based coating system,it can provide excellent flow leveling and sliding, it has excellent compatibility resin and can be used in light varnish system, it can also be used in  epoxy paint and the middle/low-temperature paint system.

Water System

   Silok®8488 can provide a sense of prominence-slip, wear and anti-scratch in water-based varnish, water-based leather paint, water-based plastic paint and metal paint; significantly reduce surface tension of the system, giving the paint of excellent mobility.

Application Method:

   Silok®8488 leveling agent can be added in coatings, paints during or after the manufacturing process; typical amount of 0.05% -0.5%,need to use a suitable solvent,such as alcohols or esters diluted to 10% solution before use, it can achieve the best distribution and miscibility of the system; however, the specific  dosage to each system is different,so it requires to determine by experiments.

 Use Restrictions:

    This product is untested or stated to be adaptable to medical or pharmaceutical.


    Silok®8488 at the temperatures below 15, the product will be muddy until solidified (caused by the structure of the product itself),it need heat to make it dissolve and then use,time after time muddy and re-heating will not affect using; for the convenience of use, suggests that when the 8488 in the liquid state, dilute it with alcohol, benzene, or ester solvents to about 20% for standby.

Storage and validity:

 Unopened store at room temperature,the shelf-life of the product from the date of production for 24 months.

Product packaging:

 Sample package: 100g brown PET bottles

 Finished Packing: 25KG/200KG iron drum
