Kemectant EB3

Dispersing Agents for Aqueous Systems

Quick Links

A humectant that can be used to protect the in-can drying of paint and coating formulations by maintaining a moist air gap at the top of the tin. Kemectant EB3 also exhibits properties to help improve the freeze-thaw stability of aqueous pigment dispersions.

Kemectant EB3 is a powerful processing aid for pigment dispersions, inks and paints.

It exhibits the following properties:
• Improves the freeze-thaw stability - 17°C over 6 cycles
• Extremely effective humectant (prevents in-can drying) up to 50°C
• VOC free, SVOC free
• Increases compatibility in all aqueous systems
For formulations containing inorganic pigments up to 70% the addition and processing of all the components including Kemectant
EB3 can be achieved by high speed/shear mixer. For organic pigments up to 55% we recommend further processing with a bead
mill or triple roll mill to achieve maximum strength and required particle size.
