  • Features

    • Improves pigment wetting of organic pigments and carbon black
    • Stabilizes the consistency and color strength of the finished coating
    • Can be used in all pH ranges
    • Contains OH functionality and can be covalently bonded in cross-linked systems

  • Applications

    • Air-drying and baking emulsion paints and lacquers. Resin systems include pure acrylic, styrene-acrylic and styrene-butadiene dispersions
    • Coatings based on NC systems

  • Dosage

    The exact dosage should be experimentally determined through a ladder study. Borchi® Gen DFN should be added to the mill base before adding the pigment. Based on active dispersant on pigment:

    • Titanium dioxide: 1 – 3 %
    • Organic pigments: 10 – 30 %
    • Carbon blacks: 30 – 60 %

  • Storage

    Protect from the effects of weather 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.
