Wetting  and dispersing additive  for stabilizing organic and inorganic pigments in  aqueous coatings, pigment concentrates.


Nonionic alkyl/aryl polyether compound with pigment-affinic groups


Special Features and Benefits

TD65 uses electrosteric stabilization to deflocculate the pigments. As a result of the small particle size of the deflocculated pigments, high levels of gloss can be achieved and the color strength is improved.Transparency and hiding power are also increased and viscosity is reduced. In this way, the flow characteristics are also improved and a higher pigment load is possible. The additive represents an alternative to the polyelectrolyte-based and high molecular weight wetting and dispersing additives that are usually used in aqueous systems and is suitable for both inorganic and organic pigments

Storage stability

Typical Properties When stored in an original unopened packing between Appearance Clear Liquid +4 and +40 C. Then product has a shelf life of at least 24 months from the date of manufacture. Separation or turbidity may occur at temperatures below 0 °C. Warm to 20 °C and mix well.
