Deuteron® ND 953 serves as an aqueous solution containing sodium polyaldehyde carboxylate. This compound functions as a dispersant, particularly beneficial for dispersing inorganic pigments and fillers within water-based formulations. Additionally, it efficiently reduces viscosity, especially in highly filled emulsion paints and plasters, aiding in their application and consistency.

Product Highlights
  • Deuteron® ND 953 is an aqueous solution of a sodium polyaldehyde carboxylate. It acts as dispersant for inor- ganic pigments and fillers in water-based formulations and effectively reduces viscosity in highly filled emulsion paints and plasters.
  • Deuteron® ND 953 can be used in resin free millbases and in combination with grinding resins. Deuteron® ND 953 works only in the pH range above 7. The pH value of the system must be adjusted accor- dingly. It is incompatible with cationic substances.

Application and Dosage Information

Deuteron® ND 953 is particularly suitable for:

  • Inorganic pigments and filler
  • Emulsion paints and plasters
  • Filler
  • Adhesives
  • Pigment concentrates

Deuteron® ND 953 especially acts as:

  • Wetting and dispersing agent
  • Anti-floating additive


  • The addition levels of Deuteron® ND 953 depends on the wetting properties of the binders and on the surface area of the pigments. Relative to the pigment content 0.3 – 0.7 % are a good starting point for formulation trials.


Deuteron® ND 953 is added to the binder phase prior be- fore pigment addition and dispersion / grinding process.

Storage and Shelf Life Conditions
  • 24 months at room temperature and dry conditions.
  • Storage temperature should not exceed 35 °C. Diskolor- ation during storage can happen and does not influence the quality of the product. Because of the low addition levels, it is not expected that the color shade of the final coating is influenced by the dark brown color of Deuteron® ND 953.
