  • Clariant offers a complete range of diverse types of dispersing and wetting agents for producing color and additive masterbatches. Two of our highlight are our Ceridust and Licocene solutions. The micronized Ceridust® waxes enable stable pigment dispersions without agglomerations to achieve optimal coloring of plastics parts. Clariant’s innovative Licocene® grades are used not only as dispersion aids but also as carriers to attain higher pigment or additive loadings and lower processing temperatures and reduce mechanical shear, useful for delicate organic pigments and special effects pigments, such as pearlescents and metallic flake.
