Stahl has introduced a new, water-based and additive-free matting resin, Relca PD-805, to its Relca Matt Binders portfolio. The 100% clean, VOC-free solution is targeted at paint and coating and printing and packaging markets, providing a safe, affordable, and high-quality matting performance for wood, metal, plastic, and glass.

In this way, Relca PD-805 helps customers to achieve regulatory and environmental compliance while also ensuring a superior matte finish.

In contrast to traditional matting solutions, which use additives to lower the gloss level for paints, coatings, or inks, Relca PD-805 is a water-based resin, meaning it can achieve a quality matte finish without the use of added matting agents.

This, and the fact that Stahl’s solution is free from other additives, including formalde-hyde, amines, solvents, and heavy metals, makes the product less sensitive to current supply-chain volatility and steep rises in the price of raw materials prices.

In addition to its superior matting efficiency, Relca PD-805 delivers a high level of thermal and chemical resistance, superior anti-blocking, anti-fingerprint, wetting abilities and im-proved abrasion resistance compared with current market alternatives, according to the company. For end-users, this means tougher, more durable coatings that last longer, with no compromise on finish.

“In line with our commitment to sustainable development and responsible chemistry, we are helping to advance the transition to water-based coating technologies,” said Raymond Bakker, global business director of Stahl Polymers.
