Special Features and Benefits
BYK-9076 deflocculates pigments by means of steric stabilization. It also generates a uniform electrical charge in
the pigment particles. The resulting repulsion effect and the steric stabilization prevent any coflocculation which
leads to non-floating coloring in pigment blends. As a result of the small particle size of the deflocculated pigments,
high levels of gloss can be achieved and the color strength is improved. In addition, the transparency is increased
in transparent pigments and the hiding power in opaque pigments. The viscosity is reduced. In this way, the flow
characteristics are also improved and a higher pigment load is possible.
BYK-9076 is suitable for all pigments and is particularly recommended for stabilizing acidic and neutral carbon
black pigments. It is used in solvent-borne and solvent-free coatings, adhesives, and PVC plastisols. A key
application area is solvent-free pigment concentrates for these applications
