Product Features
  • Afcona-5220 helps to wet and disperse inorganic pigments, mainly TiO2, and extenders. Afcona – 5220 is special designed as effective dispersant for TiO2. Therefore, recommended for pure white systems.
  • Afcona – 5220 has below special properties and recommended in below systems:
    • Afcona – 5220 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 5220 gives very strong viscosity reduction to allow higher filler loading.
    • Due to the effective viscosity reduction, it also decreases dispersing time.
    • Afcona-5220 is particularly suitable for the following coating systems:
      • Automotive (OEM and refinish)
      • General industrial
      • Coil coating
      • Acid curing
      • UPE
      • Epoxy
      • Polyurethane
    • In electrostatic spraying system for pure white paint, Afcona – 5220 gives the highest gloss performance.

Note: Afcona – 5220 will become slightly hazy at temperatures below 5° C. Even at -15° C the slight haziness stay the same. This will not influence the quality.
