Alkanolamines, such as 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol (AMP) and 2-amino-2-ethyl-1,3-propanediol (AEPD), are commonly used as key stabilising agents in a wide range of waterborne paint formulations. The versatile performance of these Alkanolamines, and their synergistic effect with a wide range of commercial dispersing agents, can help formulators achieve optimum particle size distribution of titanium dioxide, which leads to… Read more »

Alkanolamines, such as 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol (AMP) and 2-amino-2-ethyl-1,3-propanediol (AEPD), are commonly used as key stabilising agents in a wide range of waterborne paint formulations. The versatile performance of these Alkanolamines, and their synergistic effect with a wide range of commercial dispersing agents, can help formulators achieve optimum particle size distribution of titanium dioxide, which leads to ideal light scattering that drives dry film opacity. In addition, depending on the chemical structure of alkanolamines, the ability of scavenging VOC and Aldehydes support the improvement of the indoor air quality, which is part of the growing expectation of consumers. Moreover, the combination of registered biocides such as BIT or CMIT/MIT with few specific alkanolamines can enhance the in-can bioprotection during storage enabling a longer shelf lifes. This comprehensive work should help formulators to improve final dry film performances.
