Genamin Gluco 50

A multifunctional neutralizer for ecolabel certified paints

Edition Date :
November 02, 2017

Clariant’s latest innovation for the paint industry is Genamin® Gluco 50 – a renewable-based, VOC/SVOC-free multifunctional additive without any hazard labeling; thus the ideal ingredient for ecolabel certified paints.

Genamin® Gluco 50 is a neutralizing agent for waterborne paints used to adjust the pH-value to around 8 - 10 to create a stable paint system with minor interactions between the paint components. In contrast to standard neutralizing agents such as caustic soda or ammonia, Genamin® Gluco 50 additionally enhances the performance and quality profile of the paint formulation as is has favorable effects for instance on the storage and freeze-thaw stability as well as on the compatibility with pigments and the flash-rust inhibition. Even in comparison to multifunctional compounds such as aminomethyl propanol (AMP), Genamin® Gluco 50 often shows superior performance and therefore can be used as AMP replacement.

Genamin® Gluco 50 is also a suitable ingredient to reduce formulation complexity by minimizing the number of additives in the paint recipe, resulting in less raw material handling and logistic costs.

Genamin® Gluco 50 is a dimethylglucamide, a label-free sugar amine or glucamine and thanks to its performance a suitable aminomethyl propanol replacement. Its chemical name is N,N-Dimethyl-D-Glucamine.
