Polyglykol G 500 Terra

Humectant for Pigment Preparations

Edition Date :
May 08, 2022

Polyglykol G 500 Terra is a very low VOC humectant for waterborne pigment preparations. 

It provides lower preparation viscosities compared with conventional linear polyglycoles and has little impact on wet scrub resistance. Polyglykol G 500 Terra retards the drying of pigment pastes and forms a soluble film of the pigment preparation. It prevents the formation of skin or lumps on the surface of the dispersion.

The dosage in pigment preparations varies from 5 – 15% in the preparation.

 

Polyglykol G 500 Terra provides the same performance as its conventional counterpart.

As member of the Terra-family, the purpose of the mass-balanced supply chain model is to use bio-based or renewable raw materials. The mass balance is certified according to the REDcert2 and ISCC Plus standards for the chemical industry.

 

This means:

    • Use of raw materials specified by the EU directive 2015/1513/EC Annex IX
    • No plastic waste
    • No animal origin
    • No palm oil/palm kernel oil

 

Additional value:

    • Replacement of fossil raw materials
    • Reduced product carbon footprint compared to same materials made from fossil based raw materials
