Lubrizol Launches Solsperse(TM) W200 Hyperdispersant for Water-Borne Coatings
CLEVELAND, August 8, 2018 - The Lubrizol Corporation announces the commercial availability of Solsperse(TM) W200, a new dispersant from the Solsperse(TM) W-Series family of water-borne dispersant technology.
Solsperse W200 is specifically designed to provide rapid dispersion of organic pigments and high-performance carbon blacks into water-borne coatings systems. Solsperse W200 also brings superior color development to organic pigments and offers outstanding "jetness" in many of the most difficult carbon black pigments.
"Solsperse W200 delivers a step-change in performance when it comes to rapid wetting of organics and carbon blacks, with long term stability and excellent rheology control," shares Dan Latas, global market manager, Lubrizol Performance Coatings. "The time savings in dispersing, ease of flow and the high level of color development offer many benefits to coatings formulators and manufacturers that were previously very challenging, if not unachievable. Initially launched in Europe, Latin America and parts of Asia, Solsperse W200 will soon be available globally."
Solsperse W200 joins Solsperse(TM) W100 and 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.
