  • Applications

    • Coatings
      • Industrial
      • Decorative
    • Pigment concentrates (universal resin-free, UV-curing)

  • Dosage

    Recommended amounts of Borchi® Gen 12 in % (supply form) based on the following pigment content:

    • Titanium dioxide: 1 – 3 %
    • Inorganic pigments: 5 – 10 %
    • Organic pigments: 10 – 35 %

    The exact dosage should be experimentally determined but will depend upon the particle size and surface area of the pigments in the formula. Borchi® Gen 12 should be added to the mill base before adding the pigment.

  • Storage

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