Our portfolio of dispersing agents for coatings and ink formulations contains solutions for aqueous, solvent-based, high solids, 100% solids systems and universal pigment concentrates. These polymeric, oligomeric and surfactant-based technologies are known for outstanding color development, viscosity reduction, enhanced gloss and stability as well as suitability for low-VOC and APEO-free systems.
Drawing on in-depth knowledge of pigment chemistry, surface treatments and formulations, our experts will work with you to find precisely the right dispersants to overcome challenges and achieve the properties you want in your coatings.
A prime example of the advanced chemistry behind our dispersants is the award-winning controlled free-radical polymerization (CFRP) technology. It allows the creation of highly efficient and widely compatible block-copolymer dispersants that offer optimal rheology and improved coloristics.
Efka® PX is highly effective in solvent-based systems, while Dispex® Ultra PX is ideal for aqueous applications. Both polymers are characterized by a highly defined architecture, improved colorant stability and broad versatility.
Your universal dispersing agents toolbox
For coatings that have to comply with major ecolabel standards, we have developed a unique dispersant formulation toolbox. This set of dispersants enables you to formulate hazard label-free universal colorants, which are used to tint both aqueous and solvent-based architectural paints.
