We are delighted to announce the launch of our Decal 2045+, a concentrated hydrophobic dispersant for decorative paints, coatings, adhesives, and latex compounds.
Decal 2045+ is the sodium salt of a carboxylic acid polymer in water, developed with a high concentration and improved efficiency, used to disperse inorganic fillers and pigments in water borne systems.
The hydrophobic dispersant is an ideal dispersing agent for water borne high gloss coatings, containing polypropylene glycol and other glycols used to promote wet edge time and film coalescence. It can also be used to disperse fillers and pigments in products such as water-based adhesives and glues, grouts, and fillers.
Mixing Decal 2045+ with water before adding pigments and fillers using high shear mixers allows a very high pigment loading to be achieved. It is recommended for reactive pigment grades and is ideally suited for systems whereby improvements in water resistance, wet scrub resistance and blocking resistance are required.
Dan Devine, Commercial Director at Devine Chemicals said “DeCAL 2045+ is a great addition to our DeCAL 2000 Series portfolio.
“Our trials have shown that dosages of Decal 2045+ can be reduced by up to 40%, whilst still maintaining performance. Furthermore, there was noticeable improved colour development and colour acceptance when this product was used in paints and coatings.”
