As a modern anti-settling agent, it acts via adsorption phenomena on the pigment surface and effectively prevents pigments from settling and forming hard, difficult-to-stir sediments even in low-viscosity coatings such as, e.g., dipping paints and wash-primers. This is possible even in the presence of specific high density pigments based on lead, chrome, barium, iron and titanium. In addition, the uniform electrostatic charge imparted by EFKA® FA 4600 prevents re-agglomeration thereby counteracting any premature settling of the pigments. EFKA® FA 4600 is an easy to use liquid anti-settling agent, the particular advantage of which is that it is effective over a broad range of polarity. It can, therefore, be used in a nitrocellulose lacquer, the solvents of which are mainly polar, as well as in decorative paints which only contain white spirit, i.e., a non-polar solvent. EFKA® FA 4600 is also an excellent anti-settling agent for low-viscosity printing inks, e.g., flexographic and gravure.

It has been used with great success for years in the paint industry as a special agent for preventing sedimentation. EFKA® FA 4601 was developed as a result of detailed studies regarding interfacial activity. The mode of action of EFKA® FA 4601 systems results from the high surface activity of its constituents with almost all pigments. If processed properly, the individual pigment particles are coated with a monomolecular layer of adsorbed compounds which prevent agglomeration into larger particles, with the result that the fine particles remain in suspension and no caking occurs. This viscous liquid is a blend of selected fatty alcohol sulfates. EFKA® FA 4601 does not contain any alkali ions, and it is effective in most paints, provided they are not distinctly polar in their composition. view less Request Sample

This yellowish liquid is a modified polyurethane. EFKA® PU 4063 reduces the dispersing time and the mill base viscosity and thus facilitates the formulation of highly concentrated pigment pastes. After the pigment paste has been blended into paint, EFKA® PU 4063 prevents flooding and floating of pigments and promotes excellent gloss and high color intensity. This product is readily compatible with a wide range of binder types. Pigment pastes based on EFKA® PU 4063 can therefore be used in 2-component polyurethane paints, 2 - component epoxy paints, unsaturated polyester, stoving paints and air drying paints. view less Request Sample
