K-SPERSE 5100 is recommended as a pigment wetting/dispersing vehicle for solventborne or solvent free systems; it is particularly useful in 100% solids epoxy systems. It is effective with organic and inorganic pigments using high shear dispersion equipment, sand mills, pebble/ball mills and most other common methods of pigment dispersing. K-SPERSE 5100 can be used as the sole dispersing resin or as a modifier for resins with poor pigment wetting characteristics.

K-SPERSE 5100 is soluble in alcohols, esters, glycols, glycol ethers, ketones and aromatic solvents. It is insoluble in aliphatic hydrocarbons.

5-50% on total pigment loading. Recommended starting level of 10% for solventless and 20% for solventborne systems.
