To comply with regulations or meet market requirements, you may need to develop more sustainable products
by removing Glycols and other VOCs
Furthermore, you are probably facing viscosity or stability issues
with your pigment dispersions.
How do you overcome these issues and at the same time be compliant with Green Seal and Ecolabel Standards?
The Rhodoline® 3000 series of high-performance dispersants
is specifically designed for the formulation of water-based VOC-free colorants
used in Architectural, Industrial & Ink applications.
They are effective for dispersing organic pigments
. As an illustration, they enable an excellent dispersion of various Carbon Black pigments
In addition, there are several Rhodoline® 3000 grades
suitable for water-based colorants used in different applications
- exceptional color strength development
- high pigment loading at low viscosity
- improved stability
- Improved gloss

To effectively disperse inorganic pigments
, you can rely on the Rhodoline® 4000 series
Rhodoline® 4000 products are APE-free anionic wetting & dispersing agents
, used across a wide range of inorganic color pigments and providing unique solutions for low & zero-VOC Coatings and Colorants.
Rhodoline® 4000 series are versatile products that can be used:
- As co-dispersants - within the grind phase of the paint or colorant system - and are able to enhance gloss, improve adhesion and water resistance,
- As post-additives in paints to achieve optimum color enhancement and development.
See below how these Rhodoline® 4000 dispersants can help you to:
- Improve tinting properties
- Enhance color stability
- Get better viscosity retention on tinting
