Pergopak® Organic Matting Agents

A common application of Pergopak flatting and organic matting agents is car dashboards.

Pergopak® flatting and matting agents are organic thermoset polymethyl urea resins (PMU) offering significantly different performance advantages and benefits versus typical silica and polypropylene type flatting agents.  Pergopak organic flatting and matting agents help formulators of industrial coatings, inks and overprint varnishes to achieve a higher performing balance of low gloss, rheology, abrasion resistance, coin-marking, water resistance, chemical resistance, heat resistance and soft feel - that they are unable to achieve with silica or wax flatting agents alone.

Pergopak differentiators include:

  • Matting Efficiency
    • Ability to achieve dead flat gloss without significant viscosity increase
  • Imparts a soft feel to the coating
  • Excellent weathering and water resistance
  • Outstanding scratch and burnish resistance
  • Increases rub-off resistance in aerosol paints
  • Dramatically improves burnish resistance in interior flat, deep-tone house paint
  • Used in UV cure, water-based and solvent-based coatings
  • Can blend with other flatting agents
