BLUEADD / AGATHOS

The BLUEADD special additives are sophisticated wax formulations and are designed to prevent settling especially in laquers which contain a high degree of  fillers and pigments.

 

The AGHATOS special additives are based on a variety of different chemicals for numerous applications. They are used  as dispersing agents or to improve adhesion, leveling and gloss.
