Paints, Coatings

The use of fibres in the field of paints is very diverse and application-dependent, but fibres are usually added in the form of fillers as additives.

Fibres are increasingly used in the following areas:
• Primer and top coats
• Fire-resistant coatings
• Decorative coatings and paints
• Anti-slip coatings
• Paint stabilisers
• Thixotropic effects

Function of the fibre:
• Increased mechanical and thermal properties
• Greater corrosion resistance
• Decorative and lasting effect
• Greater water resistance
• Increased rheology
• Higher durability and surface resistance
• High resistance to shock, impact and wear stresses
• Greater colour stability during transport
