    Paints & Coatings that inspire confidence

    We spend around 90 percent of our lives indoors. As our health is affected by the indoor environment, it is important that the offices and buildings we work in and the homes we live in are as safe and friendly as possible. Clariant makes an important contribution to this goal by setting high standards for its additives that not only meet but also exceed those set by regulatory authorities and many ecolabel certifiers.

    Paint additives that carry the EcoTain® label fulfill a promise to be safer and healthier. This starts with the process used to manufacture our products that is optimized for efficiency and uses components that contain no harmful chemicals. And we make use of renewable resources wherever possible.

    • Dispersogen ECS

      Dispersogen ECS is an anionic, surfactant-based dispersing agent for water-based and solvent based pigment preparations, suitable for organic pigments and carbon blacks.   Dispersogen ECS is especially recommended for use in in-plant tinters and textile printing pastes. The general dosage recommendation is 20 - 50 % on organic pigments. more

    • Dispersogen MT 200

      Dispersogen MT 200 is a nonionic, surfactant based dispersing agent for water-based and solvent based pigment preparations, suitable for inorganic and organic pigments and carbon blacks. Dispersogen MT 200  is recommended for use in point-of-sales colorants, concentrates for in-plant tinting and EIFS/stucco coloration, in combination with an anionic dispersing agent such as Dispersogen 145 or Dispersogen LFS.  The general dosage recommendation is 6 - 12% on organic pigments and 5- 10% on inorganic pigments. more

    • Dispersogen PL 30

      Dispersogen PL 30 is a nonionic, polymeric dispersing agent for water-based pigment preparations, suitable for organic pigments and carbon blacks. Dispersogen PL 30 is recommended for use in concentrates for in-plant tinting and textile printing inks.  The general dosage recommendation is 10 - 30% on organic pigments. more

    • Emulsogen LCN 287

      Emulsogen LCN 287 is used as nonionic emulsifier for the emulsion polymerization of monomers like acrylates, styrene-acrylates, styrene-butadiene and vinyl acetate.  Emulsogen LCN 287 can also be used as wetting agent in water-borne coatings. It is suitable for low odor paints applying for ecolabels such as Blue Angel or Ecoflower. more

    • Genapol ED 3060

      Genapol ED 3060 is a multi-functional ingredient for waterborne paints that adds value to your paint formulation through cost reduction, performance improvements and environmental benefits. Genapol ED 3060 is suitable for very low odor coatings applying for ecolabels (such as Blue Angel and Ecoflower). Wetting agent: Genapol ED 3060 improves the wetting of the pigments used for the coating formulation and the wetting of the coated surface.  Tinting strength enhancer: Genapol ED 3060 improves the compatibility of pigments and minerals with polymers and binders in emulsion paints and prevents the rub-out effects of organic pigments. Genapol ED 3060 prevents the flocculation of organic pigments during drying of the paint film.  The resulting coating obtains the optimum tinting strength. Paint stabilizer:  Genapol ED 3060 improves the stability of paint formulations containing organic and inorganic pigments in waterborne paint formulations: Genapol ED 3060 is added to prevent flocculation, separation, rub-out and flooding in waterborne coatings Defoaming agent: Genapol ED 3060 additionally reduces the foam build up during the paint manufacture. Genapol ED 3060 releases entrapped air and helps to reduce and save foam control agents in the paint formulation. more
