Emulsogen TS 200

Compatibilizer for tinted water-/solventborne paints, dispersant for colorants and nonionic emulsifier

Edition Date :
July 08, 2021

Emulsogen TS 200 is a nonionic wetting agent for use as a compatibilizer in waterborne high PVC paints, as well as in waterborne and solvent-borne low PVC lacquers. The general dosage (supply form) is 1.0-1.5% in emulsion paints and in acrylic lacquers, and 0.25% in alkyd lacquers. 

The additive can also be used as a dispersing agent in water-based pigment preparations, suitable for organic pigments and carbon blacks. Emulsogen TS 200 is recommended for POS-colorants as well as for concentrates for in-plant tinting. The general dosage recommendation is 5-30% on organic pigments and 20-40% on carbon black.

Furthermore, Emulsogen TS 200 acts as a nonionic emulsifier for the emulsion polymerization of monomers like acrylates, styrene-acrylates, and vinyl acetate. 


The use of Emulsogen TS 200 offers the following advantages:

Product properties:
•low VOC
•free of alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEO)
•hazard label free
•easy to handle (liquid material; soluble in water)
Performance in emulsion polymerization:
•maintains low viscosity of polymer emulsion at different shear rates
•enhanced electrolyte stability
•improved shelf life
Performance in water-borne paints & lacquers:
•prevents rub-out effects
•increased tinting strength
•provides excellent freeze-that stability
•improved wetting of the coated surface  
•excellent adhesion on metal surfaces
•reduced water-absorption
Performance in solvent-borne alkyd lacquers:
•higher tinting strenght
•reduced haze
•no side effects on gloss, surface drying, blocking or yellowing
•excellent adhesion on metal and zinc
Performance in water-based pigment preparations: 
•stable, free-flowing pigment preparation
•high pigment load
