DeCAL 2043 – Ammonium Polyacrylate Dispersant

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.
