DeCAL 2080

DeCAL 2080 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 2080 is an ideal dispersing agent for a wide range of water-borne coatings.

DeCAL 2080 can be used as supplied without pre-dilution.

The neutralising alkali used in conjunction with the acrylic polymer can significantly impact the properties of the final coating. DeCAL 2080 releases ammonia during the drying process and therefore has little impact on water and alkaline resistance of the dry film.

Compared with inorganic dispersing agents, e.g., polyphosphate products, the organic polymer based DeCAL 2080 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.
