Wetting and dispersing additive for solvent borne coating systems, biodegradable


Chemical base:   Organically modified phosphatide derivative
Properties:   WETT AGENT 8023 controls the stability of the coating system at the pigment/binder interface. WETT AGENT 8023 facilitates the formation of primary particles during the dispersion process and prevents reagglomeration. Thus dispersion process is improved, the colouring power is improved and hard settlement is prevented.
Applications:   WETT AGENT 8023 is intended for use in all solvent borne air drying, stoving and 2K- systems. It is compatible with the following binders:

•    alkyd resins
•    epoxy esters
•    polyurethane
•    acrylic resins
•    bitumen
•    epoxy resins
•    chlorinated rubber
•    nitrocellulose
•    PVC mixed polymers
Technical data:
(Guide values)
  Appearance                                : dark brown liquid
Density       (ISO 2811-1)            : 0,99 g/cm³
Flash point (ISO 1523)                : > 100 °C
Processing:   WETT AGENT 8023 should be added to the mill base in order to get optimum use of its wetting properties. The quantity to be added is 0.5 – 1.5 %, calculated on system.
Storage:   Stir WETT AGENT 8023 up before use. Keep it in a cool, well-ventilated place. Occasionally, slight sediment is formed. There is no need to stir up the sediment. WETT AGENT 8023 contains a natural raw material, which can lead to variations of the color tone. In both cases the quality is not adversely affected.

Subject to appropriate storage, the described properties of WETT AGENT 8023 remain stable for at least 2 years, provided the original container is closed after use.
Packaging:   50/175 kg drum
