Clearly the quality requirements from Automotive and Industrial manufacturers become ever more demanding. BASF has developed a new dispersing agent which allows coating manufacturers to improve the resistance of their coating formulations without sacrificing obvious properties like gloss, color and transparency. Efka® PX 4780 and PX 4787 allow the formulation of both resin containing and resin free pigment concentrates with unsurpassed stability and color properties like jetness and color strength.
