IR-210 Wetting and Dispersing Additive (equivalent to BYK-110)


IR-210Copolymer with acidic groups solution (equivalent to BYK-110).

Typical Properties:

Acid value, mg KOH/gDensity at 20°C, g/mlNon-volatile matter, %Flashpoint, °C
Solvents: methoxy-propyl acetate/alkylbenzenes 1/1
These properties are provided as typical properties. Not the product technical index.

Proposed Dosages:

Dosage based upon inorganic pigments, %Titanium dioxide
The above-recommended dosages strongly depend on pigment particle size. Therefore, the laboratory should calculate optimal dosages according to a different formula.

Addition Methods&Process Technology Instructions:

These additives should be added to the abrasive before adding pigments for optimum performance.


These additives deflocculate pigments through steric hindrance because of the small particle sizes of the deflocculated pigments, High gloss is achieved, and color strength is improved.

Additionally, transparency and hiding power are increased. These products can also reduce viscosity. Then flow leveling is improved, thus increasing the pigment content.

Special Features:

IR-210IR-210 is suitable for stabilizing inorganic pigments (especially titanium dioxide) and strongly reduces the viscosity of abrasive. Because of its anionic character, it is ideal for acid-catalyzed systems (such as coil coatings). It can also reduce haze in inorganic pigmented coatings when electrostatic spraying.

Packing and Storage:

Packed in iron drums of 25 kg or 200 kg net each. The validity period is 12 months in sealed containers.

metal drum

Special Notes:

IR-210– Separation or turbidity may occur at temperatures below 5°C.
– Because of its acidity, it may catalyze the crosslinking of baking systems.
– Viscosity change of the coating system should be checked during storage.
