Recommendation for Use

We recommend a dosage of 1 - 10 % calculated on the total pigment weight.


The optimal dosage has to be determined through preliminary tests. The dosage depends on the pigment’s chemical nature, the shape and the particle surface.


The additive should be added to the mill base before predispersion.
