DELTA-DC® 3013 is a wetting and dispersing additive for solvent-based automotive paints and wood coatings to improve pigment wetting, reduce the grinding time and stabilize the pigment dispersion. DELTA-DC® 3013 is suitable for stabilizing titanium dioxide and transparent iron oxides.
Composition:Solution of an acidic polyster polyamide with pigment affinic groups
Appearance:Clear yellowish liquid
Amine value:96-99 mg KOH/g
Acid value:136-139 mg KOH/g
Applications and usage:
DELTA-DC® 3013 stabilizes titanium dioxide and transparent iron oxides in automtotive paints (Car Refinish and OEM) and wood coatings leading to the following properties:
● Reduced viscosity
● Higher pigment loading
● Higher transparency (for transparent iron oxides
● Improved pigment dispersion
● Reduced dispersion time
White base paints stabilized with DELTA-DC® 3013 have better color acceptance and do not demonstrate flooding and floating.
DELTA-DC® 3013 should be added prior to pigment grinding.
2.0-5.0% (delivery form) on TiO2
20.0-30.0% (delivery form) on transparent iron oxides
The optimum addition level will depend on the specific formulation.
Safety and Handling:
DELTA-DC® 3013 should be handled in accordance with good industrial practice. Detailed information can be found in the Safety Data Sheet.
DELTA-DC® 3013 should be stored in a cool dry place. When kept in an original unopened container, it will keep up to 5 years from the date of manufacture. The production date is indicated on the container.
