Borchi® Gen 1757 is a VOC-free wetting and dispersing agent that improves bismuth vanadate pigment dispersions in water-based systems. Also known as C.I. Pigment Yellow 184 from Colour Index International, bismuth vanadate is a yellow inorganic pigment that forms from a reaction of bismuth nitrate and sodium vanadate.
Benefits of Borchi® Gen 1757 for bismuth vanadate pigment dispersions include enhanced color development, superior opacity, higher b* value than market leading dispersants, and lower viscosity at high pigment loading (which in turn, provides excellent pigment wetting). Storage stability and anti-settling are improved when used in combination with our Borchi® Gel PN rheology modifier for low shear thickening in water-based systems. Borchi® Gen 1757 has been tested with various bismuth vanadate pigments, including DCC® Yellow RMXS from Dominion Colour Corp., as shown in our sales tool.

- Borchi® Gen 1757 is a hybrid wetting and dispersing additive, providing a combination of various principles of pigment stabilization in bismuth vanadate pigment dispersions
- Excellent with high loading water-based bismuth vanadate concentrates
- Produces vibrant color and superior opacity with a wide range of bismuth vanadate pigments
- General Industrial
- Protective and Marine
Active on pigment loading:
- Bismuth vanadate pigments: 10 – 20 %
The exact dosage for bismuth vanadate pigment dispersions should be experimentally determined through a ladder study. Borchi® Gen 1757 should be added to the mill base before adding the pigment.
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.
