TEGO DispersEvonik has launched a new sustainable dispersing additive, TEGO Dispers 658. The latest TEGO dispersing agent in the portfolio is readily biodegradable and improves the sustainability of pigment and coloured coatings production.

"Our new dispersing additives from the TEGO Dispers 65x series are extremely popular with our customers,” said Frank Kleinsteinberg, head of application technology pigment concentrates. “When used in universal pastes, they are characterized by high pigment stabilization reliability and maximum flexibility: from use in waterborne wall paints to the formulation of high-solids door coatings, everything is possible. With TEGO Dispers 658, we now have a product that minimizes the potential impact on aquatic organisms while maintaining the same performance which enables our customers to develop new product families that are already geared to future standards.”

Dispersing additives are important raw materials for the production of pigmented coatings and pigment concentrates as intermediates for coloured coatings. They provide, for example, the viscosity reduction necessary to achieve high pigment contents. Dispersing additives help to stabilize the particles after the dispersion process over the long-term and maintain high colour intensity. Thanks to their trouble-free compatibility when combining different pigment concentrates, and their applicability in a wide variety of base coats, they enable a wide range of colour shades to be produced efficiently.

"Our customers are striving for efficiency, so they want to streamline their raw material world and make it more sustainable, without having to make costly adjustments to their manufacturing processes. TEGO Dispers 658 offers them a good option for reformulating paints and coatings at low cost as part of a more ecologically compatible product innovation," said Nadia Lenhardt, head of the decorative coatings market segment in Europe.

New Bacharach Sling Psychrometer


CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart. Gardco.com
