Air Products Carbowet® GA Series Grind Aids Receive 2015 Ringier Technology Innovation Awards

Carbowet Ringier AwardInnovative, High Performance Coating Solutions for Improved Efficiency Recognized

Air Products’ Materials Technologies segment has recently won the 2015 Ringier Technology Innovation Award for the Coating Industry in China for its Carbowet GA-series grind aids. This is the fifth consecutive year Air Products as a global specialty additives leader for water-based formulations has received this
prestigious recognition. 

The award-winning Carbowet GA-series grind aids are designed for a variety of coatings and inks applications involving a time-consuming pigment milling process. Offering an ideal balance of both wetting and stabilizing characteristics for milling and dispersion performance, these surfactants can help formulators improve both the dispersion milling process efficiency and formulation performance. Functioning through dynamic wetting and a form of dynamic stabilization, these products are used to overcome deficiencies in the dispersant or grind resin and can improve hiding power, as well as providing higher gloss, greater color and faster color development. The Carbowet GA-series grind aids have superior performance in many dispersion formulations such as TiO2, inorganic pigments, organic pigments and carbon black, among others.
