CASE Ingredients Features
Product Features
  • Afcona-5010 helps to wet and disperse inorganic pigments, mainly TiO2 and extenders. This product is specially designed as an effective dispersant for TiO2. Therefore, it is recommended for pure white systems. If later the white base will be tinted with other colors, Afcona-4010 would be a better choice.
  • Afcona – 5010 has the following special properties:
    • Afcona – 5010 is tailor made as effective dispersant for TiO2 and extenders.
    • It has very good viscosity reduction properties. In high extender loaded systems, like UPE in artificial marble, Afcona- 5010 gives very strong viscosity reduction to allow higher filler loading.
    • This effective viscosity reduction also decreases dispersing time.
    • Afcona-5010 is especially suitable for the following coating systems:
      • Automotive (OEM and refinish)
      • General industrial
      • Coil coating
      • Acid curing
    • This product gives the highest gloss performance in electrostatic spraying systems for pure white paint.
  • Afcona-5010 may have a catalyzing effect on the reaction in heat-cured enamels. This may lead to viscosity increase during storage.

Note: Afcona – 5010 will become slightly hazy at temperatures below 5° C. This will not influence the performance of the product.
