Product Features
  • Afcona-5515 is a dispersing additive for a wide range of water-based coatings. The product is especially suited for the dispersion of inorganic pigments.
  • Compared with inorganic dispersing agents, e.g. polyphosphate products, the organic polymer- based Afcona-5515 provides improved storage stability of both the pigment dispersion and the formulated paint. There is little or no adverse reaction to high temperatures or pH changes.
  • Afcona-5515 can be used as supplied.

Coating End Applications
Addition and Dosage

Calculation method for the required amount of active ingredient on pigment:

TiO2 1 - 2%
Other inorganic pigments 2 - 8%
Fillers 0.4 – 0.8%

In common with other dispersing agents, because of variation in the dispersant demand of pigments and fillers, these dosage recommendations need to be verified through testing.

Incorporation

Afcona-5515 should be incorporated in the mill base before adding the pigments and fillers.
