New universal dispersing agent for organic and inorganic pigments
High molecular weight dispersing agent that exhibits outstanding performance in pigment stabilization covering a broad range of applications
BASF has recently launched a new high molecular weight dispersing agent: Dispex® Ultra PX 4290, which features excellent performance in pigment stabilization, outstanding color strength and brilliant viscosity reduction.
Dispex® Ultra PX 4290 offers the benefits of higher pigment loadings while maintaining exceptional flow characteristics. Other highlights also include improved gloss, anti-flooding behaviour and excellent flocculation stability.
Dispex® Ultra PX 4290 was developed in response to a surging market demand for a dispersing agent, which enables broad applicability in both inorganic and organic pigments and fillers used in water-based automotive OEM and refinish coatings, industrial coatings and wood coatings. Its application can be further extended to printing inks and adhesives as well.
