Solsperse® X300 Reactive Dispersant Improves Pigment Dispersion and Flow in Radiation-Cured Coatings and Inks

Published on 2008-06-06. Author : SpecialChem

CLEVELAND, OH -- Lubrizol Advanced Materials, Inc., a subsidiary of The Lubrizol Corporation has announced the first product in a line of new XL Reactive technology hyperdispersants for radiation-cured coatings and inks. Solsperse® X300 reactive dispersant crosslinks into the structure of the coating system, improving pigment dispersion and stability in UV coatings.

Used in conjunction with increasingly popular radiation-cured coatings and inks, Solsperse X300 helps to reduce solvent emissions and improve environmental compliance. It is a 100- percent active cross-linkable dispersant that is dissolved into the millbase oligomer/monomer before the addition of pigments. When dispersing certain organic pigments, the performance of Solsperse X300 can be enhanced with the use of additional Solsperse synergist, such as Solsperse 5000 for blue, green and some carbon black pigments and Solsperse 22000 for yellow, red and orange pigments.

When used in these applications, Solsperse X300 helps formulators achieve improved pigment wetting, enhanced tinctorial properties and increased hardness.
