  • Dosage

    • 0.2 – 3.0% on total paint formulation

    Borchi® Gel 0626 is easy to use and can be added at any stage of the formulation. The best incorporation method is to add it after the pigment/filler dispersion stage but prior to being let down. Under low shear mixing conditions, a pre-dilution in water or a mixture of water/propylene glycol may be necessary for complete incorporation. The exact dosage should be experimentally determined.

  • Storage

    Protect from the effects of weathering and store at temperatures between 5 and 30 °C. Once opened, containers should be resealed immediately after each removal of the product.
