OBSERVATION OF ENAMEL CONTAINING S-HAM

  • DRYING: Use of S-HAM speeds up drying of the system when applied on the Surface.

        TECHNICAL EXPLANATION

        S-HAM contains some specialty chemicals which form Azeotropic mixture due to                  which solvent release is accelerated, resulting in faster drying.

  • GLOSS: Gloss of the film remains unchanged.

        TECHNICAL EXPLANATION

        Addition of S-HAM improves the leveling property and a smooth film like sunmica is              obtained. Smooth surface reflects light to a great extent and hence the gloss, even              though Alkyds solids are reduced.

  • COVERING: No decrease in covering capacity is observed.

        TECHNICAL EXPLANATION

        In normal condition, when you increase the final yield without increasing the                          pigment, reduction in covering is observed as % of pigment goes down. Special
        wetting agents incorporated in S-HAM permit the system to achieve the same
        covering without any extra pigment as it promotes better dispersion of the pigment.
