Carbon Black and Pigments

Carbon Black and Pigments

Borregaard offer sustainable, aqueous dispersants for dyes and pigments, including carbon black, that will help you increase milling efficiency and loading while reducing initial viscosity.

Following the trend to move towards water-based pigment solutions to improve sustainability, we offer you a wide portfolio of bio-based dispersants for applications like water-based inks for digital printing and paints, among others.

As pigments are insoluble, they are added to the medium by grinding them to a fine powder and mixing them into the slurry system. To have a homogenous distribution of the pigment requires the use of dispersants like ours. The dispersion process affects the economics and quality of the finished pigment formulation.

Our products Vanisperse CB and Marasperse CBOS-4 will help you fully develop the properties of your pigment or carbon black system by:

  • Speeding up the milling process
  • Enable increased loading
  • Stabilising the dispersion
  • Reducing gelling and free water
