Formulated paints containing SILRES® BS 168 show:

  • excellent storage stability
  • excellent pH stability
  • improved mechanical resistance
  • improved water resistance

SILRES® BS 168 is suitable to formulate low VOC and low odor paints.

For ease of application and better handling properties, a dilution of SILRES® BS 168 with water (i.e. 1:3) is recommended prior adding in a formulation. Addition under stirring is recommended in order to avoid local high pH values.

The dosage of SILRES® BS 168 depends on the formulation of the paint. The right amount should be determined by adding SILRES® BS 168 till the pH needed is obtained (i.e. 9,5 for a standard paint).
