Matting Agents

For more than 3,000 years human beings have protected their property with paints. These days, we have a choice of ready-made high gloss, silk matt and matt paints. Silica-based matting agents from Evonik Degussa GmbH can alter the surface in such a way that the light falling on it is scattered in a defined fashion. The matting agent particles stand out from the paint, invisible to the human eye. Neither the color of the paint nor in the case of clear coatings the base is changed to any great extent.
