Dispersogen ECS is an anionic, surfactant-based dispersing agent for water-based and solvent-based pigment preparations, suitable for organic pigments and specialty carbon blacks. The product is especially recommended for use in in-plant tinters. The general dosage recommendation is 20 - 50 % on organic pigments. Dispersogen ECS also acts as wetting agent/compatibilzer in waterborne high PVC paints as well as in waterborne and solvent-borne low PVC lacquers. The general dosage (in supply form) is 1.7-3.3% in emulsion paints, 3.3-5.0% in acrylic lacquers and 0.85-1.7% in alkyd lacquers.


The advantages of Dispersogen ECS are:
  • low VOC
  • hazard label free
  • free of alkylphenol ethoxylates
  • ecolabel compliant
  • broad registration status: Australia (AICS), Canada (DSL), Europe (REACH), Japan (ENCS), China (IECSC), Korea (KECI), Taiwan (NECI), New Zealand (NZIoC), Philippines (PICCS)
