SLAM* 3000 Anti-Mist Additive

Reduce Misting, Combine With Release Coatings

SLAM 3000  anti-mist additive is a high-molecular-weight silicone polymer additive that reduces misting during high-speed roll application of solvent-free silicone release coatings. SLAM 3000 anti-mist additive is mixed with release coatings at concentrations tailored for specific machine conditions. Use of the SLAM 3000 anti-mist additive typically has little effect on cure, coverage, bath life or release properties of release coatings.

More About SLAM* 3000 Anti-Mist Additive

SLAM 3000 anti-mist additive can be formulated with a release coating just prior to use or preblended with partially formulated vinyl silicone polymers that include platinum catalyst and/or inhibitor without shortening shelf life of the preblend. SLAM 3000 anti-mist additive should not be preblended with SiH-containing silicone crosslinkers.

The proper level of SLAM 3000 anti-mist additive for a particular silicone polymer depends on the following variables: 

  • Line speed
  • Coating head characteristics (nip pressure, roll diameter, rubber hardness, surface technology)
  • Substrate properties (porosity and surface topology)
  • Type of polymer used (molecular structure, rheology, homogeneity, cavitation)

The targeted line speed of a silicone coating application affects how much SLAM 3000 anti-mist additive is needed to reduce misting of a given coating formula. Lower levels may reduce or eliminate mist at lower line speeds, but higher levels may be needed to obtain comparable performance at higher line speeds.
