Our family of grinding resins for solventborne formulations has a new member
TEGO® Variplus BK is a new ketone resin that enables formulators to reduce the VOC of the colorant formulation to 350 g/L. It is compatible with a broad range of binder technologies and has a low influence on coating properties like drying time, hardness and weatherability.
For even lower VOC levels TEGO® Variplus BK can be combined with our well known TEGO® Variplus LK. Colorant formulations with a low influence on coating properties and VOC contents between 250 and 300 g/L become possible.
