OUR PRODUCT GROUPS

dispersing_agents

WETTING AGENTS / COMPATIBILIZERS

Wetting agents improve compatibility, reduce rub-out effects and influence the coating’s storage stability, gloss, scrub resistance, and foaming behavior among others. All our products are APEO-free, low-VOC and ecolabel-compliant.

WETTING AGENTS / PROCESS AIDS

Certain wetting agents are used as process aids to optimize processing time. Wetting agents can help avoid agglomeration; this is especially important in areas where hard tap water is utilized in the manufacturing process.
Neutralizing agents for paints & coatings
Humectants for paint formulations

NEUTRALIZING AGENTS

Multifunctional neutralizing agents not only adjust the pH value of the paint formulation, but also create a stable system between paint components. Renewable-based, VOC/SVOC-free alternatives do not require any hazard labeling and are thus the ideal ingredient for ecolabel-certified paints.

STABILIZERS

The new generation of biocide-free paints offers the benefit for consumers to be less allergenic as they are free of biocides such as isothiazolinones. The biocide-free paint system is mineral-based, contributing to a healthier indoor climate by offering better vapor permeability.
