Application and Dosage Information

Deuteron® OG 250 is suitable for a wide range of applications including:

  • Wood and joinery coatings
  • Overprint varnishes

The use of Deuteron® OG 250 especially improves performance in:

  • Slip reduction
  • Anti-Blocking
  • Water beading
  • Rub resistance

Dosage

  • 1 - 5 % (calculated on the complete formulation) depending on binder, application and required properties.

Processing

  • Deuteron® OG 250 is easy to disperse and can be incorporated using a common high-speed stirrer. It is recommended to add Deuteron® OG 250 while stirring to avoid eventual agglomeration caused by concentration differences. Because of the low melting point it is not recommended to add Deuteron® OG 250 under high shear stress (i. e. during pigment grinding) as temperatures above 50 °C can lead to a significant agglomeration of molten wax particles.
