Non-aqueous dispersants facilitate the production of highly loaded, highly stable and broadly compatible dispersions for a variety of particles in 1K and 2K coatings, paints and primers, as well as solvent-based inks. Solvent-borne dispersant technology for organic, inorganic and carbon black pigments and fillers are tasked with being soluble in a wide variety of solvents, including non-polar aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, medium-polar solvents, such as esters and ketones, and polar solvents such as alcohols.
Lubrizol has developed a wide range of non-aqueous dispersions for solvent-based paints, coatings and inks used across a variety of consumer and commercial industries. We often work directly with customers to adapt our dispersant technologies to meet their exact needs. And, we continue to develop new non-aqueous dispersant technologies to meet evolving needs.
Our line of Lubrizol Solsperse™ Hyperdispersantsare designed to provide a wide range of benefits to meet needs of the solvent-based market. They offer the combination of wetting, dispersing and anti-settling benefits, as well as major process and formulation advantages. These advantages include ease of use; increased milling and dispersion efficiency; higher solids loading dispersions; compatibility with a broad range of pigments, resins, co-solvents and other formulation components; particle size reduction; reduced viscosities; improved coloristics; cost reductions; and, low VOC.
For paints and coatings, Lubrizol solvent-borne dispersants are commonly used in automotive and transportation, general industrial, coil coatings, marine and protective coatings, aerospace, and wood coatings to deliver a wide range of performance and rheological and aesthetic benefits. For printing and packaging applications, Lubrizol oil-based dispersants are utilized in segments such as digital, flexo, gravure, offset, and screen, to provide a similar range of rheological and aesthetic benefits, as well as to deliver indirect food compliance benefits.
