TEGO® Dispers 690 is designed specifically for solventborne printing inks used in food packaging. The ingredients contained in this wetting and dispersing additive are completely compliant with the A list of Swiss Ordinance SR 817.023.21, Annex 6.

By using TEGO® Dispers 690 in solventborne, PU-containing or binder-free pigment dispersions, high pigment loadings can be achieved due to strong viscosity reduction. TEGO® Dispers 690 is highly compatible with various PU and NC binder types and works well with organic pigments, carbon blacks and titanium dioxide.

TEGO® Dispers 690 is especially effective in gravure and flexo inks for lamination applications.
