Momentive Launches Axilat HP8538 Redispersible Powder for EIFS Layer Formulations
- Jun 22, 2012
Ribècourt, France -- Momentive Specialty Chemicals has launched new Axilat HP8538 redispersible powder, especially for external insulation finishing systems. The new redispersible powder combines best-in-class performance and water resistance with an eco-friendly product profile.
"The new Axilat product offers a sustainable option for applicators," says Yves Decloïtre, Business Manager Building and Construction at Momentive. "At the same time, because of HP8538's excellent properties, formulators need not compromise on performance and have the possibility to optimize their formulation costs."
HP8538 is ideal for all EIFS layer formulations (adhesive, basecoat, topcoat), but can also be used in many other mortar applications. Properties include:
outstanding adhesion to many substrates, which is critical for EIFS adhesive layers or any formulation where high bond strength is required.
excellent adhesion in wet conditions, an essential property for EIFS adhesive layers, but also for CTA formulations such as CTA C2 and CTA formulations where high polymer content is needed such as C2 S1/S2.
outstanding hydrophobicity, which is particularly important for basecoat and topcoat EIFS layers and can be very useful in applications where low water absorption is required such as gypsum and cement formulations (grouts, renders, repair mortars).
Because of HP8538's wide range of applications, formulators can reduce the number of raw materials they stock, simplifying inventory management and production.
