Product overview
GELKYD® 4648 WD 80 is a high solids polyamide modified thixotropic alkyd for use in all types of decorative coatings. GELKYD® 4648 WD 80 is especially suitable for formulation of thixotropic paints that meet the 2010 VOC limits set in European Directive 2004/42/CE : formulated as sole binder, it allows the formulation of paints with a VOC lower than 300 g/l. Supplied in low aromatic white spirit, GELKYD® 4648 WD 80 enables the formulation of coatings that do not require adverse environmental labelling and has been developed for use in the formulation of high quality decorative interior and exterior finishes. When blended with suitable high solids alkyds, GELKYD® 4648 WD 80 can be used to produce media with a wide range of structures, from strong gel to creamy consistency, depending on the mixing ratio.
