DeCAL 2048

DeCAL 2048 is a derivative of a family of highly effective, low viscosity dispersing agent for water-borne coating systems.  The product is especially suited for the dispersion of inorganic pigments.


DeCAL 2048 is an ideal dispersing agent for a wide range of water-borne coatings.

DeCAL 2048 can be used as supplied without pre-dilution.

DeCAL 2048 can be used to increase the solids loading of the required inorganic dispersion or reduce the working viscosity at a given solids content.  As a result, process efficiency is increased and economics improved.

Compared with inorganic dispersing agents, e.g., polyphosphate products, the organic polymer based DeCAL 2048 provides improved storage stability of both the pigment dispersion and the formulated paint.  There is little or no adverse reaction to high temperatures or pH changes as indicated in the following graphs, which are examples showing the accelerated effects.
