Pigment Dispersions in Low-Viscosity Polyester Resin: PDI Type 16

PDI Type 16 colorants are comprised of the highest-quality pigments dispersed in a special low- viscosity polyester resin vehicle that is totally reactive with all polyester resin formulations. The low viscosity enables you to pour, weigh and mix much faster than before at equivalent pigment loadings. Or, if stiff pastes are typically preferred, higher pigment loadings are attainable.

Colorant vehicle

Unsaturated polyester Type 16 dispersion containing 75 percent TiO2 (white) pigment by weight is pourable/ pumpable at 10,000 centipoise.
