TEGO® Dispers 673 - New Superior Dispersing Agent for Solventborne Plastic Coatings

TEGO® Dispers 673 is specifically designed for high quality solventborne plastic coatings. Its effectiveness with carbon black pigments enables high jetness/blackness especially in medium-solid coatings. This qualifies the product particularly for computing, communication, and consumer electronics as well as car interior coatings.

Besides its high effectiveness with carbon black pigments, TEGO® Dispers 673 provides excellent color stability and works well with various organic pigments. It is compatible with many binder systems. Additionally, TEGO® Dispers 673 is easily processed. It leads to a strong viscosity reduction and stable viscosity in the pigment paste, while not influencing other important properties such as adhesion or chemical, sunblock, and UV resistance.
