Genamin A 016

Neutralizing agent for waterborne paints and emulsion polymerization

Edition Date :
October 30, 2021

Genamin A 016 is a cost-effective pH neutralizing agent for waterborne paints and emulsion polymerization.

It is a suitable replacement for ammonia and other neutralizing agents such as aminomethyl propanol. Genamin A 016 meets all performance parameters in terms of pH stability, low odor, freeze-thaw stability, controlled color properties, controlled gloss and opacity, stable viscosity and scrub resistance.

The dosage recommendation (in supply form) is 0.1% - 03%. 



 The advantages of Genamin A 016 are:

  • Effective co-dispersing properties in pigment dispersions and slurries
  • Higher long-term pH stability
  • Less impact on yellowing in paints in comparison to benchmark products 
  • Excellent cost-performance
