Adhesive, Caulk and Sealant Colorants
ACS – Universal solvent-based acrylic pigment dispersion
High quality pigment dispersion compromised of an acrylic resin and propylene glycol monomethyl ether (PM) acetate. A proprietary additive package allows the ACS series to be compatible in a wide range of solvent-based systems, including automotive, architectural, and industrial coatings. A full color range is available.
VR – Solvent-based vinyl resin based pigment dispersion
The VR line is formulated with a blend of MEK solvent and solution vinyl resin. These products are predominately used to pigment solvent-based vinyl roto-gravure inks for coated fabrics. This product line also finds some use in solvent-based coatings and adhesives.
WC – Water-based acrylic resin supported pigment dispersion
This is an aqueous pigment dispersion based on a styrenated acrylic resin solution. The low viscosity of this system allows for generally high pigment loadings while remaining easily pourable. This is a versatile dispersion used to tint water-borne adhesives and caulking compounds.
WWT – Water-based, resin free, low VOC pigment dispersion
Resin-free aqueous pigment dispersion with near zero VOC. A proprietary additive package allows WWT to be compatible in systems where typical resins cannot function. This versatile product is used in water-based adhesives and caulk compounds. A full color range is available.
EH – 100% solids epoxy based pigment dispersion
Epoxy dispersion based on 100% solids epoxy resin with an epoxide equivalent weight of 190-208. EH can be used to color the “A” side of two component epoxy adhesives. Most colors are of pourable viscosity and are specifically formulated to protect against viscosity build, for improved shelf life. A full range of shades is available, including custom matched colors. For “B” side colorants we recommend our RN, VC, and VPU product lines.
EHC – 100% solids low viscosity epoxy based pigment dispersion
Low viscosity epoxy dispersion based on 100% solids epoxy resin with an epoxide equivalent weight of 190-208 and a reactive diluent. This low viscosity product line is designed for easy introduction into epoxy based adhesive systems. EHC is widely used to color the “A” side of two component epoxy adhesives. A full range of shades is available, including custom matched colors. For “B” side colorants we recommend our RN, VC, and VPU product lines.
PC – Unsaturated polyester based pigment dispersion
A 100% solids unsaturated polyester based pigment dispersions compatible with a wide range of polymer chemistries. This product presents a low- or zero-VOC option to traditional solvent-based pigment dispersions. Current customers benefit from the PC pigment dispersions universally coloring gel coat, epoxy, urethane, and polyaspartic coatings. It is also compatible with resins used in molding processes; SMC, BMC, pultrusion, cultured marble and other FRP. The products are designed to minimize flooding and floating in a variety of coating formulations. A full range of shades is available, including custom matched colors.
plasticizer based pigment dispersions: VC, VPU, VAH, RN, and spr
VC, VPU, VAH, RN, and SPR lines are based on a variety of primary and secondary plasticizers to meet individual regulatory needs. These product lines are low in viscosity and designed for easy introduction into solvent-based, moisture cure, and two component adhesive and caulk systems.
