Published on 2013-01-21. Author : SpecialChem

Manufacturers Chemicals LLC (MCLLC) has developed a new dispersing agent / anti-settling aid that can be used in water-based formulations of paint and other dispersions. The new product, EcoCare ASA, is based entirely on vegetable based materials. ASA is an effectives grinding aid and dispersant. ASA also acts as an anti-settling compound that facilitates improved remixing. This very unique chemistry suppresses foam and will eliminate the need for additional antifoams in some formulations. It also acts as a surfactant to facilitate spread and penetration onto dry surfaces.

EcoCare ASA is non VOC and contains no harmful or hazardous ingredients. EcoCare ASA is the most recent addition to the EcoCare family of products developed from plant and vegetable material streams. MCLLC has developed proprietary methods to make chemicals from vegetables and animal byproducts. Many of these products carry the EcoCare trade name because of their potential to replace harsher synthetic chemistry.
