Emulsogen TS 100 compatibilizer

Compatibilizer for tinted water- and solventborne deco paints and process aid for waterborne coatings

Edition Date :
July 08, 2021

Emulsogen TS 100 is a nonionic wetting agent for use as compatibilizer in waterborne high PVC paints, as well as in waterborne and solvent-borne low PVC lacquers. The general dosage (supply form) is 0.5-1.0% in emulsion paints, 1.0-1.5% in acrylic lacquers, and 0.25-1.0% in alkyd lacquers. 

When used during the premixing phase in the production of waterborne emulsion paints, Emulsogen TS 100 also acts as a process aid and helps to reduce the grinding time by faster desagglomeration of TiO2 and fillers. This is especially of interest in areas of hard water. The general dosage recommendation (supply form) for this purpose is 0.24%.  


The use of Emulsogen TS 100 offers the following advantages:

Product properties:
•low VOC
•free of alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEO)
•suitable for ecolabel certified paint

Performance as process aid in the production of water-borne emulsion paints (high PVC):
•reduces the grinding time by faster desagglomeration of TiO2 and fillers in slurries
•less energy consumption and more production capacity
•use recommandation: 0.24% supply dosage

Performance as compatibilizer in water-borne emulsion paints (high PVC):
•prevents rub-out effects
•increased tinting strength
•provides excellent freeze-that stability
•no side effects on wet-scrub or gloss
•use recommandation: 0.5-1.0% supply dosage

Performance as compatibilizer in water-borne acrylic lacquers (low PVC):
•prevents rub-out effects
•increased tinting strength
•improved wetting of the coated surface  
•excellent adhesion on metal
•reduced water absorbtion

•use recommandation: 1.0-1.5% supply dosage

Performance as compatibilizer in solvent-borne alkyd lacquers (low PVC):
•prevents rub-out effects
•increased tinting strength
•reduced haze
•good adhesion on metal and zinc
•no side effects on yellowing or blocking
•no impact on surface drying and overpaintability performance
•use recommandation: 0.25-1.0% supply dosage
