Mud cracking is usually found in waterbased paints and can often be due to lack of control in the drying phase, or more specifically due to applied film thickness and drying temperature.
Borregaard´s additives reduce the tendency for mud cracking during drying by keeping the surface open. This in turn provides the opportunity to reduce open time extenders and related VOC levels in your paints.
In addition, our products offer the following benefits in exterior coatings
- Improved open-time
- Reduced tackiness
