- Prevent and correct fisheyes & orange peel
- Enhanced color & gloss
- Ensure superior surface qualities and appearance
Flow and leveling are two attributes that significantly determine the aesthetics of a coating or rather the surface of a coating. The results of poor surface flow may be fisheyes, brush marks or other surface defects. Thus, flow modifiers such as allnex’ MODAFLOW® Lambda are added to a formula to ensure superior surface qualities. Leveling agents, too, ensure a nice, optimal coating finish – that is why they are crucial for optimizing paint appearance. For example, poor leveling may result in an orange peel effect, dull colors and unwanted matte looks. Such results are for instance fundamental in the automotive industry as car paint relies on the use of one of the Modaflow products for a perfect, glossy coating surface.
