It prevents the formation of skin or lumps on the surface of the dispersion.The dosage in pigment preparations varies from 5 – 15% in the preparation. Polyglykol G 500 Terra provides the same performance as its conventional counterpart. As member of the Terra-family, the purpose of the mass-balanced supply chain model is to use bio-based or renewable raw materials. The mass balance is certified according to the REDcert2 and ISCC Plus standards for the chemical industry. This means:Use of raw materials specified by the EU directive 2015/1513/EC Annex IXNo plastic wasteNo animal originNo palm oil/palm kernel oil Additional value:Replacement of fossil raw materialsReduced product carbon footprint compared to same materials made from fossil based raw materials
