Matting Efficiency and Surface Protection: An Outstanding Level of Multi-Feature Performance From New Wax Additive Technology

CLEVELAND, May 19, 2020 – Lubrizol introduces the commercial availability of Lanco™ 1390 F wax additive, offering ink and coating formulators an inorganically modified surface modification technology – capable of delivering new levels of surface protection and matting efficiency without affecting coefficient of friction (COF).

Lanco 1390 F easily incorporates into a range of water-based and solvent-based ink and coating formulations and delivers robust in-can stability. It provides multi-feature surface modifying capabilities, including matting efficiency, excellent hardness capabilities, and abrasion, scratch & scuff resistance – with a unique ability to not affect COF.

“At Lubrizol, we are happy to make this new wax additive technology available to customers”, shares Miriam Peralta, marketing manager. “Lanco 1390 F is fully versatile and provides formulators the opportunity to enhance surface protection for floor coating and ink applications without the concern of system compatibility, dispersion and in-can stability. While other technologies can be combined to deliver similar benefits, Lanco 1390 F takes it a step further – enabling multi-feature capability in a single surface modifying technology while providing in-can stability into water-based and solvent-based systems”.
