Polyglykol 200 LVC

Humectant for Pigment Preparations

Edition Date :
December 17, 2021
Polyglykol 200 LVC is a very low-VOC humectant for water-borne pigment preparations with little impact on wet scrub resistance. Polyglykol 200 LVC retards the drying of pigment pastes and forms a soluble film of the pigment preparation. Polyglykol 200 LVC prevents the clogging of the nozzles of tinting systems and metering machines.

Benefits

Polyglykol 200 LVC offers the following advantages:

  • little impact on wet scrub resistance at usual charges
  • low VOC-content (< 0.2 wt.%)
  • hazard label free
  • free of alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEO)
  • compliant with ecolabel criteria
