AMP™-75 Multifunctional Neutralizer
AMP™-75 Multifunctional Neutralizer is widely recognized as a multifunctional additive for all types of latex emulsion paints. In a formulation, AMP™ can be used as a powerful co-dispersant to prevent re-agglomeration of pigments. At the same time, it will contribute significant benefits to the overall performance of the coating.
To take full advantage of AMP™ as a co-dispersant, up to 30% of the existing dispersant solids can be replaced by an equal weight of AMP™. This generally amounts to 0.05 to 0.1 percent of AMP on the total weight of the formulation. Typical formulations require 0.1 to 0.3 percent (on total formulation weight) of AMP™ for optimum pH stability, for associative thickener neutralization, and to eliminate in-can corrosion. For control of flash rusting, an additional 0.1 to 0.2 percent (on total formulation weight) of AMP™ may be required.
Dow Consumer & Industrial Solutions is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Dow Chemical Company and goes by the name ANGUS Chemical Company. The ANGUS Chemical Company is the only one of it's kind to specialize in nitroalkanes and their derivatives. They produce four basic types: 2-nitropropane, 1-nitropropane, nitroethane and nitromethane. These can serve the customer in two ways. They can either be an additive that augments product performance or a chemical building block for use in a wide range of applications.
