In 2009, AFCONA launched a new co-grinding dispersant—AFCONA-4017. It is based on polyurethane modified dispersant good for epoxy, polyester and polyurethane. Meanwhile, AFCONA-2502 was developed as an effective defoamer for water-based pigment concentrate preparations. It can withstand for instance high shear force and long spans of grinding. Both products will be featured at AFCONA's booth E3G05-12 during CHINACOAT 2009.
