What is DISPERBYK-106?

The additive disperses pigments by steric stabilization, leading to smaller particle sizes which enhance gloss, color strength, transparency, and hiding power while reducing viscosity. This improves flow characteristics and allows for higher pigment concentrations.

How to Find Equivalent to DISPERBYK-106

DISPERBYK-106 is a polyphosphate compound composition, a wetting and dispersing additive for solvent-borne and solvent-free systems for industrial, architectural, and wood coatings. It reduces viscosity, improves flow, increases gloss and colour strength. This wetting and dispersing additive is technologically advanced in the field of chemical additives, and this guide will introduce you to the equivalent of DISPERBYK-106.

Understanding the need for an equivalent product

Before you begin your search for an alternative dispersant to DISPERBYK-106, understanding the specific limitations or requirements of the dispersant in your formulation will help you determine the criteria for an alternative. Common reasons include: cost-effectiveness, performance improvement, environmental considerations or supply chain diversification. Determining the need and then finding the right product from the global marketplace begins with understanding the industry context.

Understanding the industry context

In the world chemical additives industry, the countries with the dominant products are Germany, Japan, China, South Korea and the United States. But the most rapid development is China, the end of the last century, EFKA, BYK and other leading brands to enter the Chinese market, so that China’s coatings and inks additives industry in more than 30 years of rapid development, in order to better participate in the competition of China’s huge market, China’s additives companies continue to introduce new high-performance products, performance and price more and more advantageous, and gradually in the world has a greater and greater influence.

One of the most influential companies in the Chinese market – Camen Chemical is one of the representatives. They not only have a R&D team led by more than 20 PhDs, but also co-operate with many famous universities in research and development. In the whole Chinese market, there are nearly 1,000 coating and ink manufacturers cooperating with them, the reason is that their products not only have good performance and stability, but also have a very advantageous price, and what’s more important is that they have been constantly innovating.

For example, DISPERBYK-106, which is the subject of this article, can be replaced with Camen Chemical’s BZ-110C epoxy wetting and dispersing additive (click here to view), which has the same performance as DISPERBYK-106.
