Spredox® dispersing agents are polymeric dispersants developed to disperse and stabilize pigments in coating, ink, and plastics. Spredox® greatly enhances the properties and performance of the finished products.
- Reduction of viscosity
- Color strength enhancement
- Gloss increase
- Longer storage stability
In general, it is advised increase pigment loading with Spredox dispersing agents in the formulation. This is because Spredox products lower intermolecular forces, leading to significant viscosity reduction.
If viscosity is too low, proper grinding will not occur. It is thus recommended to increase pigment loading to lift the millbase to proper milling viscosity. Higher pigment loading also means higher letdown output, which increases the overall production output.
