Efka® SL 3288



Efka® SL 3288 is an additive designed to improve slip, leveling, surface smoothness and ‘soft-touch’ effect in high gloss coatings. It has a minimal effect on foam stabilization and intercoat adhesion. Due to its excellent compatibility properties, it is very suitable for use in high-gloss clear coatings without causing haze. Efka® SL 3288 is recommended for all kinds of solvent-based high-gloss coatings, especially wood finishes. It is also suitable for water-based industrial coatings.
