How can I get more color out of my pigment?

Mike Peck Mike Peck
Senior Research Chemist

Pigments can be one of the most expensive components of waterborne ink formula-tions. To address this challenge, Air Products understands your need to increase your color development and pigment loading and has developed a variety of pigment wetting agents, grind aids and dispersants suitable for a wide range of organic and inorganic pigments. Proprietary ZetaSperse® and Surfynol® CT series additives provide optimal wetting and dispersancy for reduced mill-base processing time. These additives are highly efficient when compared to competitive additives, enabling either less dispersant or less pigment, thus achieving cost savings. They also enable stabilization of a high concentration of pigment in water at low viscosity to achieve a higher throughput and/or a product with a higher pigment loading. These unique properties translate to unique benefits for formulators.
