Lubrizol Launches Solsperse(TM) W100 Hyperdispersant for Water-Borne Coatings
CLEVELAND, August 7, 2018 - The Lubrizol Corporation announces the commercial availability of Solsperse(TM) W100, a new dispersant from the Solsperse(TM) W-Series family of water-borne dispersant technology.
Solsperse W100 is a multi-functional dispersant designed to work with a broad array of pigments across a wide range of water-borne coatings, simplifying the selection process for formulators. It is highly efficient, bringing pigments to optimum color development with 10-15% less dispersant than competitive dispersants require. In addition, the unique chemistry of Solsperse W100 has less impact on film properties, especially water resistance, making it ideal for use in corrosion control coatings or waterproofing coatings.
"Solsperse W100 delivers outstanding performance at much lower treat rates and has the 'all-rounder' characteristics that make it a solution to many of the challenges formulators face when designing water-borne industrial coatings," shares Dan Latas, global market manager, Lubrizol Performance Coatings. "The minimal impact on film properties will be widely applicable to many end-uses that were previously more challenging for water-borne technology."
Solsperse W100 joins Solsperse(TM) WV400 in the Solsperse W-Series of advanced water-borne dispersants. Each product in the Solsperse W-Series portfolio, which is designed to bring step-change dispersant performance, brings unique benefits for water-borne coatings.
