Clariant Showcased SMP Sealants Stabilizer at American Coatings Show 2024 Clariant, a sustainability-focused specialty chemicals company, showcased its latest innovations to customers at the American Coatings Show 2024.

Reduce Environmental Footprints

Expert representatives were spotlighting a variety of innovations to improve performance and reduce environmental footprints through bio-based ingredients, as well as opportunities for collaboration with Clariant specialists.

We’re also delighted to introduce the newest addition to Clariant’s portfolio of light and heat stabilizers for SMP sealants, AddWorks® IBC 760,” said Ray Gonzales, head of marketing coatings & adhesives, business unit adsorbents and additives.

This technology surpasses the performance of current benzotriazole-containing solutions in the market, and it offers improved protection against UV and thermal degradation.

Improved Processing and Handling Properties

Omya and Clariant have been jointly granted a European Patent for the AddWorks® IBC 760 technology, an innovative label-free light and heat stabilizer solution for SMP sealants. This product offers improved processing and handling properties, while reducing the cracking and yellowing that typically occurs during exposure to strong sunlight or high temperature conditions. AddWorks® IBC 760 is furthermore a safe and effective solution that meets the high standards of customers and the industry.

In addition, Clariant’s “Industrial Applications Innovation Center” in Charlotte, NC is ready to collaborate with coatings manufacturers to jointly tackle technical challenges and compliance requirements. The state-of-the-art lab facilities feature specialized equipment including a spray booth, weathering chambers, and measurement instrumentation to test and optimize customer formulations. Experts at the center also support compliance testing for sustainability standards and emerging regulations.
