Lubrizol Introduces Solsperse 74000 Hyperdispersant - Expands its Rad-Cure Dispersant Additive Portfolio for Printing Inks and Coatings


CLEVELAND, March 15, 2017 - The Lubrizol Corporation introduces Solsperse(TM) 74000, a 100% solids wetting and dispersing agent for UV cured ink systems. Solsperse 74000 is a 100% active polymeric dispersant designed to improve operational efficiencies for both ink manufacturers and printers. Pigment concentrates and millbases made using Solsperse 74000 can achieve higher color strength at lower pigment loading, enabling higher print strength in final inks without compromising gloss, rheology or stability. These improvements are achieved across a wide range of pigments - both standard process and spot colors.

Solsperse 74000 is TSCA, DSL, REACh, Swiss Ordinance and Nestle compliant. It is APE-free1 and has no California Prop65 reportable content.
