Dispersant for Bismuth Vanadate Pigments

Borchi® Gen 1757 is a VOC-free dispersant that improves bismuth vanadate pigment dispersions in water- and solvent-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 Dispersants for Bismuth Vanadate Pigments

Benefits of our Borchi® Gen 1757 dispersant for bismuth vanadate 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 this dispersing agent is used in combination with our Borchi® Gel PN rheology modifier for low shear thickening in water-based systems.

  • Features

    • 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 bismuth vanadate concentrates
    • Produces vibrant color and superior opacity with a wide range of bismuth vanadate pigments

  • Applications

    • Coatings
      • Architectural
      • General Industrial
      • Automotive
      • Protective and Marine

  • Dosage

    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.

  • 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.

  • Safety

    Please refer to our safety data sheet for information relating to product safety.
