Rhodoline® high performance dispersants have been designed for the fomulation of water-based colorants used in Architectural, Industrial & Ink applications. These additives help producers to develop more sustainable products (removal of Glycols and other VOCs) with a high level of performance.

Optimize Carbon Black dispersion using Rhodoline® dispersants

The Rhodoline® 3000 series of high-performance dispersants enable an excellent dispersion of carbon black pigments. They have been evaluated against competitive market products and have shown superior performance.

Rhodoline® 3100 and Rhodoline® 3500 were used to formulate water-based colorants that were tested in:
  • Architectural flat and semi-gloss paint
  • Industrial acrylic gloss white base and a DTM acrylic clear base paint

>> Access the evaluation results of Rhodoline® 3100 in Architectural flat and semi-gloss paints

>> See the evaluation results of Rhodoline® 3500 in Industrial acrylic gloss and DTM acrylic paints

In a nutshell, colorants formulated using Rhodoline® 3000 products for Architectural and Industrial applications, can bring:
