Concentration: 75 % + - 1

Ionic Character: Anionic / non ionic 

Stabilities: SILCO CT 2076 is sensitive to frost; after the impact of temperatures considerably below the freezing point irreversible changes could occur.

Storage: The product is stable for at least 24 months at well-ventilated areas. Avoid temperatures below 4 °C and above 40 °C. Prevent from freezing. Stir before use.



▪ Highly effective

▪ Good substrate wetting

▪ Reduces the surface tension 

▪ Silicone free


Application Fields

Due to its chemical structure SILCO CT 2076 is particularly recommended for water based formulations. SILCO CT 2076 is particularly characterised as compatibiliser for water based colorants.


Preferred fields of application:

▪ Industrial coatings

▪ Wood coatings

▪ Water based coating systems

▪ Pigment concentrates


Recommendation for Use

We generally recommend a dosage of 0.5 – 2.0 % calculated on the total formulation. The optimal dosage has to be determined through preliminary tests.


The additive can be added at any point of the production process at low to medium shear forces.
