It has been shown that multifunctional amines are excellent neutralizing agents,
but these are also a solution to optimize pigment loading in your waterborne coatings.
Multifunctional amines appear to be an excellent co-dispersing agent that will improve
both pigment dispersion and stability of your waterborne coatings while at
the same time leads to cost savings!
Excellent pigment, fillers and opacifiers dispersion
Thanks to multifunctional amines, your paint's color will be maintained,
you'll be able to achieve excellent pigments dispersion and you'll reduce
your costs as you'll use less anionic dispersants and pigments.
In addition of the enhanced pigment dispersion obtained you will also reduce your
costs as you will use less dispersing agent and pigments in your paste:

Thanks to its ability to co-disperse pigments, multifunctional amines are a cost-effective
solution: reduce your paste loading to reach the same paint color!
Wetting and adsorption properties
Multifunctional amines' low superficial tension leads to good pigment dispersion
and substrate wetting.

Moreover, thanks to its excellent dispersing and wetting property, multifunctional
amines enable formulators to reduce paste loading while reaching the same paint
color, thus leading to important cost savings in your optimized formulations.
Using multifunctional amines is not only a way to lower odor, enhance dispersion
and avoid stability problems in waterborne coatings, it is also a way to save
