AMP™-75 Multifunctional Neutralizer is widely recognized as a multifunctional additive for all types of latex emulsion paints. In a formulation, AMP™ can be used as a powerful co-dispersant to prevent re-agglomeration of pigments. At the same time, it will contribute significant benefits to the overall performance of the coating.
To take full advantage of AMP™ as a co-dispersant, up to 30% of the existing dispersant solids can be replaced by an equal weight of AMP™. This generally amounts to 0.05 to 0.1 percent of AMP on the total weight of the formulation. Typical formulations require 0.1 to 0.3 percent (on total formulation weight) of AMP™ for optimum pH stability, for associative thickener neutralization, and to eliminate in-can corrosion. For control of flash rusting, an additional 0.1 to 0.2 percent (on total formulation weight) of AMP™ may be required.
