Tullanox ® Treated Precipitated Silicas and Super Hydrophobic Coatings

Hydrophobic, Icephobic Coatings:

Functional use in super-Hydrophobic coatings which make water bead up mercury-like

Papers--Provides unique protection; withstands autoclave temperatures up to 260°F.  Needed for surgical papers; produces overcoat protection for water sensitive colorants.

Electronic equipment--When a system is moisture sensitive, Tullanox® is added to the insulation coating to retard water penetration .i.e., electronic junction coatings, cable gels, and epoxy encapsulating compounds.

Radar antennas and radomes--Tullanox® LC-410 Eliminates rain water film formation, insures clearer radar signal transmission.

Building eaves, gutters, transmission wires and insulators, ship's superstructures--Reduces icicle formation with easy ice removal; promotes drop-wise condensation of moisture.

Seeds--Insures germination under adverse wet soil conditions.

Building foundations, walls, tree trunks and plant stems--Modifies vertical surfaces to discourage climbing insects by rendering their adhesion mechanisms inoperable.

Structural concrete Forms--Provides easy release and eliminates surface imperfections caused by air voids.

Lawn mowers and snow blowers--Reduces clinging of wet grass and snow.

Sand and other earth products--Produces a completely dry and frost-free sand or soil which can be used for: under ground enclosures--as a fill to provide year round easy access; upgrading secondary roads; insulating oil transmission pipelines; oxygenation of polluted lake bottoms; control of surface rain water run- off; regulating water uptake of potting soils and golf green turf; and retarding the surface water evaporation of soils.

Oil absorbents, coated papers, wood products, fibers, straw--Enables efficient selective absorption of oils in the presence of water...i.e., industrial wastes and oil slicks.

Automotive--Protects ignition wiring, offers corrosion protection for underbody and exhaust system.

Sporting goods--Produces a shimmering dressing for dry flies, maintains a frictional surface on handles of clubs, bats and rackets by repelling perspiration.

Functional use as an additive in other coating systems

Metal die casting lubricants--provides lubrication for molten metals, offers easy release, replaces graphite and eliminates discoloration of parts.

Lacquers and varnishes--Provides flatting for polymer systems that are sensitive to moisture, improves wetting of overprint varnishes without high viscosity increase; provides moisture protection in conformal coatings for electronic components.

Masonry treatment--Provides excellent water shedding capability while maintaining an unpainted appearance.

Wood and metal primers, including zinc rich systems--Provides superior brushability, film toughness and adhesion to substrate with accompanying water repellency; provides higher pigment suspending capability, promotes soft settling.

Metal flaw detector indicators--Small particle size insures ease of detection.

Chromatographic column treatment--Provides a unique hydrocarbon surface for separating mixtures.

Apparel emblem inks and paints--Allows thickening of coatings and provides durability in laundering.

Eliminates rain water film formation,  insures clearer radar signal transmission."
