What is disperbyk-190

The additive disperses pigments through steric stabilization, leading to smaller particle sizes. This results in high gloss levels, improved color strength, increased transparency, and reduced viscosity.

Products Equivalent to DISPERBYK-190

DISPERBYK-190 is a VOC and solvent-free wetting and dispersing additive that can be used in aqueous coating systems and printing inks. Standard additive for pigment concentrates without binders. It improves gloss, reduces viscosity and is suitable for all pigments. This waterborne coating additive is technologically advanced in the field of chemical additives, and this guide will direct you to equivalent products to DISPERBYK-190.

Understand the need for an equivalent

Before you begin your search for a replacement dispersant for DISPERBYK-190, understanding the specific limitations or requirements of the dispersant in your formulation will help you determine the criteria for the replacement. 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.

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, the end of the last century, EFKA, BYK and other leading brands into the Chinese market, so that China’s coatings and inks additives industry in the 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 for R&D. Throughout the 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, stable products, but also have a very advantageous price, and more importantly, they have been constantly innovating.

For example, DISPERBYK-190, which is the subject of this article, can be replaced by Camen Chemical’s W-2180 water-based wetting and dispersing agent (click here to view), which has the same performance as BYK-190.
