Developmental and technical information

Techpolymer is widely used as a matting agent for paint and coatings.
Techpolymer easily disperses into solvent. Adding Techpolymer into paint provides mat finish and scratch resistance.

Higher solvent resistant and/or sharper particle size distribution are being developed.

Recommended grades

MBX, BMX, and ARX series

Main grade

n MBX series

n BMX series

This series is spherical particles of cross-linked polymethyl methacrylate, applicable when heat, solvent, and/or weather resistance is needed. High cross-linked grades are recommended when using strong solvents.
BMX series is spherical particles of cross-linked polybutyl methacrylate, applicable to baking finishes and coil coatings.
These coatings can give a softer texture than MBX series.
