Product Overview

Elvacite® 4331 is a thermoplastic methacrylate polymer that is ideally suited as for pigment dispersion in pigment paste preparations. It is compatible with a broad range of both organic and inorganic pigments and provides excellent wetting. The low molecular weight of Elvacite® 4331 allows for lower viscosity solutions and heavier pigment loading. It is available in as a free flowing solid bead that is soluble in ketones, esters, toluene, and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Solutions of Elvacite® 4331 have remarkable clarity and will not interfere with pigment coloration.
