May 15, 2022
Dispersogen AN 200 is a surfactant-based dispersing agent for water-based and solvent-based pigment preparations, suitable for inorganic and organic pigments as well as for specialty carbon blacks. The product is especially recommended for use in point-of-sales colorants and concentrates for in-plant tinting. The general dosage recommendation is 10-50 % on organic pigments and 5-20% on inorganic pigments. Dispersogen AN 200 also acts as wetting agent/compatibilzer in waterborne high PVC paints as well as in waterborne and solvent-borne low PVC lacquers. The general dosage (supply form) is 0.6-1.9% in emulsion paints, 1.5-1.9% in acrylic lacquers and 1.3-1.9% in alkyd lacquers.
