Genapol ED 3060

Wetting agent for decorative paints

Edition Date :
November 02, 2017

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.
