Opacifiers and Opaque Polymers

Better opacity with polymers

For paints and coatings, our opaque polymer additives help your formulations deliver opacity, gloss, brightness and light-scattering effects.  

Opaque, hollow-sphere polymeric pigments 

Our advanced polymeric opacifiers are engineered to improve the efficiency of titanium dioxide (TiO2) through better spacing for improved light scattering – all while maintaining the performance of the paint or coating.   

The advantages of these additives include: 

  • Significantly increased light-scattering efficiency for opacity 
  • Reduced TiO2 consumption up to 20-35% 
  • Lower carbon footprint compared to TiO2 
  • Low VOCs 
  • Options for water- or solvent-borne formulations   

Acrylic pre-composite polymers

Formulating paint with our 100% acrylic pre-composite polymers offers better wet and dry hiding efficiency – plus performance improvements. These acrylic polymers: 

  • Reduce TiO2 use up to 20% with excellent hiding capabilities 
  • Improve abrasive scrub resistance and household stain removal 
  • Increase stain blocking
