TEGO DispersEvonik has launched a new sustainable dispersing additive, TEGO Dispers 658. The latest TEGO dispersing agent in the portfolio is readily biodegradable and improves the sustainability of pigment and coloured coatings production.

"Our new dispersing additives from the TEGO Dispers 65x series are extremely popular with our customers,” said Frank Kleinsteinberg, head of application technology pigment concentrates. “When used in universal pastes, they are characterized by high pigment stabilization reliability and maximum flexibility: from use in waterborne wall paints to the formulation of high-solids door coatings, everything is possible. With TEGO Dispers 658, we now have a product that minimizes the potential impact on aquatic organisms while maintaining the same performance which enables our customers to develop new product families that are already geared to future standards.”

Dispersing additives are important raw materials for the production of pigmented coatings and pigment concentrates as intermediates for coloured coatings. They provide, for example, the viscosity reduction necessary to achieve high pigment contents. Dispersing additives help to stabilize the particles after the dispersion process over the long-term and maintain high colour intensity. Thanks to their trouble-free compatibility when combining different pigment concentrates, and their applicability in a wide variety of base coats, they enable a wide range of colour shades to be produced efficiently.

"Our customers are striving for efficiency, so they want to streamline their raw material world and make it more sustainable, without having to make costly adjustments to their manufacturing processes. TEGO Dispers 658 offers them a good option for reformulating paints and coatings at low cost as part of a more ecologically compatible product innovation," said Nadia Lenhardt, head of the decorative coatings market segment in Europe.

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
