Deuteron® WD A is suitable for a wide range of applications including

  • Wood and joinery coatings
  • Flexographic inks
  • Overprint varnishes
  • Metal coatings (can and coil coatings)

The use of Deuteron® WD A especially improves performance in

  • Velvet surface feel (soft touch)
  • Sanding properties
  • Long lasting wood grain enhancement (clear coats)
  • Meat-release (can-coating)

0.5 - 6.0 % (calculated on the complete formulation) depending on binder, application and required properties.

Processing Information
  • Deuteron® WD A is easy to disperse and can be incorporated using a common high-speed stirrer. It is recommended to add Deuteron® WD A while stirring to avoid eventual agglomeration caused by concentration differences.
  • Aqueous, additive free dispersion of amide wax
