Applications and usage:
Coatings & printing inks
DELTA-DC® 4071 is suitable for both low- and high-polar solvent-based coatings and printing inks and also for aqueous systems. It is used to reduce flooding and settling in non-polar systems e.g. air-drying alkyd paints. It is an effective anti-settling agent in wash and shop primers, nitrocellulose primers, primer surfacers and aqueous stains.
It improves the colour acceptance of tinting bases in white latex paints, resulting in higher pigment efficiency.
DELTA-DC® 4071 helps to prevent interfacial tension between the hydrophilic pigments/extenders and the binders. This will result in reduced dispersion time, stabilization of the pigment dispersion,decreased flooding of pigments.
When using DELTA-DC® 4071, hard sedimentation and sagging will be prevented and gloss will be improved.
DELTA-DC® 4071 can be considered as a cost-effective environmentally friendly replacement for APEs (Aryl Phenyl Ethoxylates).
DELTA-DC® 4071 should be added prior to the dispersion process.
