TEGO® Dispers 688: New high quality wetting and dispersing additive for matte UV curable coatings and printing inks

TEGO® Dispers 688 is a new premium dispersant for matte UV curable coatings and printing inks. Processing and productivity can be improved during manufacturing and continuous application of the coating due to the excellent rheological profile.

Low thixotropy, low viscosity and good yield points can be seen even with the highest concentrations of matting agents when using TEGO® Dispers 688. Coatings have constant matte and gloss levels after storage, even at high usage of matting agents.

Evonik produces an extensive line of defoamers / deaerators, dispersants, surface control agents, co-binders, and resins specially designed for waterborne, solventborne, high-solids, and energy-curable systems.
