TEGO® Dispers 653 and TEGO® Dispers 656 – Dispersing additives for universal pastes with excellent water resistance for indoor and outdoor applications

Wetting and dispersing additives for universal pigment concentrates have not been renowned for achieving good water resistance. Consequently, universal pigment concentrates are used in architectural paints mainly for light colors.

With the new water-resistant wetting and dispersing additives, TEGO® Dispers 653 and TEGO® Dispers 656, it is possible to produce even dark shades with low water absorption.

The dispersing additives meet the EU Eco-label formulating requirements and are, like all wetting and dispersing additives from Evonik, free from alkylphenol ethoxylates.
