What is DISPERBYK-142

The additive significantly lowers the surface tension of coating systems, enhancing substrate wetting and preventing cratering. It also increases surface slip, gloss, and anti-blocking properties.

Products Equivalent to DISPERBYK-142

DISPERBYK-142 is a high molecular weight wetting and dispersing additive for solvent-borne coatings and pigment concentrates. It stabilises pigments in epoxy resins. It has a viscosity-reducing effect and remains stable during storage. However, the dosage cost when dispersing carbon black is relatively high and can reach 90%. Therefore many companies are looking for products that can replace it. This guide will walk you through the process of finding a DISPERBYK-142 equivalent.

Understand the need for an equivalent

Before diving into the search for DISPERBYK-142 alternatives, understanding the specific limitations or requirements of DISPERBYK-142 in your formulations will help you determine the criteria for alternatives. Common reasons include: cost-effectiveness, improved performance, environmental considerations, or supply chain diversification. Determining the need and then finding the right product from the world market starts with exploring the industry context.

Explore the Industry Background

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, at 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 the 30 years of rapid development, in order to better compete in China’s huge market, China’s additives companies continue to introduce new high-performance products, performance and price more and more advantageous, and gradually have more and more influence in the world.

Camen Chemical, one of the most influential companies in the Chinese market, 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 for R&D. Throughout the Chinese market there are nearly 1,000 coating and ink manufacturers cooperate with them, the reason is that their products not only have good performance, product stability, price is very advantageous, and more importantly, they have been constantly innovating.

For example, the DISPERBYK-142 wetting and dispersing agent in this article can be replaced by Camen Chemical’s W-2195 wetting and dispersing agent (see), and its performance exceeds that of DISPERBYK-142.
