TEGO® Dispers 761 W - Especially for Food Packaging: Dispersant for waterborne, binder-containing pigment dispersions

TEGO® Dispers 761 W is designed specifically for waterborne printing inks and coatings for food packaging. The wetting and dispersing additive consists completely of raw materials compliant with the A list of Swiss Ordinance SR 817.023.21, Annex 6.

By using TEGO® Dispers 761 W in waterborne, binder-containing pigment dispersions, properties like gloss and color strength are enhanced significantly.

Furthermore, TEGO® Dispers 761 W drastically reduces the mill base viscosities of dispersions based on organic pigments and carbon blacks. This characteristic enables the production of highly pigmented mill bases which can result in significant cost savings.
