BTC introduces NEW Dispex® Ultra PX 4290 pigment dispersant from BASF Performance Additives.
All coatings require innovative formulation additives to meet demanding performance parameters and stringent environmental regulations. BTC Europe offers the full range of BASF’s respected brands and technologies including dispersing agents, rheology modifiers, defoamers, wetting agents & surface modifiers and film forming agents for automotive & industrial coatings, furniture & flooring and the printing & packaging industries.
Dispex® Ultra PX 4290 is a brand new dispersing agent for broad use with a wide range of pigments. Standard dispersants only tend to exhibit peak performance with a few pigments but PX 4290 is a high molecular weight dispersant for aqueous coatings, inks and adhesives that offers optimal results across a broad range of both inorganic and organic chemistries. The excellent pigment stabilizing activity means that outstanding colour strength and viscosity reduction can be achieved. This allows the formulator to achieve a high pigment loading without influencing flow characteristics, enabling much enhanced formulation flexibility. Other performance highlights include improved transparency, improved gloss & anti-flooding behavior and excellent flocculation stability. Dispex® Ultra PX 4290 finds particular use in resin-free pigment concentrates, furniture & flooring coatings and in printing & packaging formulations e.g. for ink-jet and resin-free / resin-based flexo inks.
