Ammonium Polyacrylate

Ammonium Polyacrylate Dispersants

All products in the 2000 series are synthetic dispersants and demonstrate a high degree of stability to prolonged storage under hot alkaline conditions and effective over pH range 5.5 to 14.


DeCAL 2041 Ammonium Polyacrylate Homopolymer

DeCAL 2041 is a solution of an ammonium salt of an acrylic polymer in water. This product is a low viscosity dispersing agent for water-borne coating systems and is especially suited for the dispersion of inorganic pigments.


As with DeCAL 2040, DeCAL 2041 is the standard dispersant for matt emulsion paints and can also be used in certain semi-gloss and gloss formulations.


  • Ideal dispersing agent for a wide range of water borne coatings.
  • Can be used as supplied.
  • Improved storage stability of both the pigment dispersion and the formulated paint.
  • Little or no adverse reaction to high temperatures or pH changes.

DeCAL 2043 Ammonium Polyacrylate Copolymer

DeCAL 2043 is a low viscosity product used to disperse inorganic pigments and fillers in water-borne systems.


DeCAL 2043 is especially suited for use in silk and gloss emulsion paints where its compatibility with glycols maintains the gloss of the system. DeCAL 2043 is used to disperse fillers and pigments in many products such as tile adhesives, grouts, fillers and water based adhesives and glues.


  • Ideal dispersing agent for water borne high gloss coatings because it is compatible with polypropylene glycol and other glycols used to promote wet edge time and film coalescence.
  • Effective at high temperatures above 100°C over a pH range of 5 – 12.
  • Offers much better stability and improved shelf life for water borne paints and coatings.
  • Very high pigment loading can be achieved when thoroughly mixed with water before adding pigments and fillers to the system using high shear mixers.
