Clariant's modular system - easy answer to diverse pigment pastes

May '11
Clariant prioritizes pigment producers' need for simplicity without compromising on high-performance with its one-stop modular system of Dispersogen dispersing agents for pigment preparations.

Clariant's modular system uses only four non-APEO containing / low VOC dispersing agents to cover every organic pigment and carbon black used in waterborne pigment concentrates. This supports the coatings industry's environment-focused trend towards waterborne coatings and finding solutions for APEO and VOC regulations.

The straightforward system simplifies production by reducing inventory and production materials. At the same time manufacturers can create a broad variety of pigment pastes with high tinting strength. The dispersing agents allow high pigment concentrations and create low viscosity for better free-flowing behavior and uniform dispersion.

The four products allow for the different chemical nature of pigments: Dispersogen PTS for the biggest variety of pigments; Dispersogen LFS for difficult to disperse pigments; Dispersogen LFH, the acid form of Dispersogen LFS; and Dispersogen 4387, which is partly based on renewable resources, offering high dispersing power for benzimidazole pigments and others.

“Clariant's modular system of dispersing agents meet modern requirements for solutions with less environmental impact while achieving the highest technical standards in terms of color strength, dispersion rheology and coating compatibility,” adds Hendrik Ahrens, paints & coatings development chemist at Clariant.
