High-performance, hydrophobic copolymer dispersant especially useful for semi-gloss and gloss paints. Well suited for today’s generation of formulations as it is made without solvents or APEO surfactants. Particularly well fitted for formulations that contain hydrophobically modified urethane rheology modifiers. Offers excellent TiO2 stabilization, leading to good tint strength and contrast ratio. The hydrophobic composition makes it able to maximise gloss in semi gloss and high gloss formulations. Can also enhance hydrophobic stain resistance and water resistance of the formulation.
