Hydropalat® 44 is a pigment dispersant for titanium dioxide and extender pigments. It is an anionic polyelectrolyte. Hydropalat® 44 is, even at low dosages, a highly effective dispersing aid. As a sole dispersant it does not require any auxiliary dispersant or wetting agent or polyphosphates. This productdemonstrates excellent initial gloss retention and superior gloss retention after heat again. It shows exceptional compatibility with reactive pigments such as zinc oxide and with solvents like ethylene and propylene glycol. This permits the use in glycol based grinds or in pigment slurries.
