LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF SE has globally launched a series of innovative, reactive and high-performance dispersing agents: Efka® PX 4780, Efka® PX 4785 and Efka® PX 4787 based on advanced polymer technology for the automotive and industrial coatings segment.

Dispersing agents form an essential part of a pigmented coating formulation. Their use would generally improve grinding efficiency, color development, transparency and gloss. But physical properties of the coating layer can be compromised. 

Efka® PX 4780, Efka® PX 4785 and Efka® PX 4787 have been specifically designed to alter this dynamic. When cross-linked with the main resin matrix, these high-performance dispersing agents offer excellent dispersing efficiency and significantly improves coating properties, such as solvent resistance and hardness.

Other benefits include improved gloss and exceptional jetness with carbon black pigments.
