ROPAQUE® HP-1096 The All-Purpose Pigment Table of Contents

Ropaque® HP-1096 opaque polymer is a non-film-forming synthetic pigment engineered to improve the economics of waterborne coatings. Ropaque HP-1096 is a polymer with a large void fraction designed to be used in coatings where the pigment volume concentration is in the range of 50PVC and higher. Ropaque HP-1096 contributes similar volume solids to ROPAQUE OP-96, but at lower weight solids allowing lower raw material cost. This allows formulators to gain additional savings in paints above the critical pigment volume concentration and at very low titanium dioxide levels, by further increasing the total pigment volume concentration over that of Ropaque OP-96 based paints. Ropaque HP-1096 is not recommended at PVC's below 50 as its relatively large particle size may decrease gloss and sheen levels. At this lower PVC's Ropaque Ultra is recommended. Reformulation Protocols Ropaque HP-1096 is designed for optimum usage closed to above critical pigment volume concentration (CPVC) water borne paints having Titanium Dioxide levels below 12% pigment volume concentration (PVC). Reformulation of paints not previously containing ROPAQUE or other competitive Opaque Polymers : First calculate the %PVC of pigment and extenders in your formulation, the Total %PVC should be within the range of 50 to 85%. TIO2% PVC For TiO2% PVC's greater than 6%, rev=move 1/2 of the TiO2% PVC. If TiO2 level is below 6% PVC, then remove 1 1/2 % PVC units of TiO2. High Oil Adsorption Extender For high oil absorption. extenders such as Kaolinite clays and alumino silicates, maintain an equal level of these materials in the reformulation.

HP-1096 % PVC Add 8 to 12% PVC of Ropaque HP-1096 to the reformulation Total % PVC Increase the total % PVC of the reformulated paint by 5% PVC units by adjusting the low O.A. extender such as calcium carbonate, chlorite, or silica. Maintain the volume solids of the reformulation equal/higher to that of the original. Coalescent should be added on the same basis as recommended for the binder used, however, the amount of Ropaque HP-1096 added should be included in the calculation. Reformulation of Paints Containing Ropaque OP-96 Replace Ropaque OP-96 on an equal weight basis or, for lowest cost reformulation, follow guidelines below. First calculate the % PVC of pigment and extenders in your formulation the Total % PVC should be within the range of 50 to 85%. TiO2 % PVC Decrease the level of TiO2 by 0.5% PVC units. If the original level of TiO2 is greater than 12 % PVC, the Ropaque HP-1096 reformulation may be more expensive than the OP-62 formulation. High Oil Adsorption Extender For high oil absorption extenders such as Kaolinite clays and alumino silicates, increase the combined level of these materials in the reformulation by 2 to 3% PVC units. HP-1096 % PVC Increase the level of ROPAQUE OPAQUE POLYMER in the reformulation by 4% PVC units. Total % PVC Increase the total % PVC of the reformulated paint by 2.5 % PVC units by adjusting the low oil absorption extender such as calcium carbonate, chlorite, or silica. Maintain the volume solids of the reformulation equal/higher to that of the original.

Coalescent level may be increased to further improve scrub resistance and film formation.


Maintain properties at lower raw material cost and hence increase profitability Improved properties at little or no cost increase Improved dirt resistance in exterior coatings Improved interior washability Better wet-to-dry color matching Color consistency at every tinting Improved block resistance for interior coatings

We recommend Ropaque HP-1096 for exteriorand Interior formulations. Interactions with Other Paint Ingredients Ropaque HP-1096 hiding properties depends on the integrity of the hollow sphere in the paint film. As with all polymers, polymers can be affected by solvents. White Spirits and Plasticizers Avoid the use of white spirits and plasticizing solvents. The aromatic contents of white spirits and many monomeric plasticizers have similar solubility parameters . This can soften the polymer shell and cause the collapse of the spheres during film formation. Alcohol-based coalescents and glycols do not affect Ropaque HP-1096, however, during paint preparation, they should not be added in concentrated form to Ropaque HP-1096 to avoid flocculation. Handling and Storage Information Some special storage and handling techniques should be observed for Ropaque Opaque Polymers. Intermittent agitation during bulk storage (approximately 15 minutes every 12 hours) is recommended for controlling sedimentation. A two-inch recirculating closed loop, using a sliding vane design, diaphragm type, or other low-shear pump to transfer material, is preferred to a top-entering agitator. The recirculating loop should discharge below the liquid level of the polymer to avoid foam generation. As with all our emulsions, do not use mild steel, iron, copper, brass, bronze, aluminum, or zinc-coated lines, valves, plugs, tanks, etc., in the transfer and storage of opaque polymers. Polymer accumulates on such surfaces, starting a nucleating process that results in extensive polymer fouling. Avoid using surfaces that enable the polymer to wick out, as the wicking process causes the development of nodules of hard material that grow out from these areas and eventually drop into the polymer. Examples of materials that could result in wicking are old fiberglass tanks with exposed glass fibers, a coated tank with part of the coating broken, and drums with pinholes in the lining. Exposure of opaque polymer to high shear will cause mechanical breakdown and polymer buildup. Examples of high shear situations include pumping through small mesh filters at high flow rates and use of pumps with close tolerances. When filtering with absorbent elements, pre-wetting the element reduces binding. Cartridge filters and bag filters with needle-punched filter bags are examples of filters with absorbent elements. Shared transfer lines and other components should be flushed with water before they are used for opaque polymers. Contact with concentrated glycols, surfactants, and acid

materials, could cause gelling. Compatibility with all new materials should be checked routinely. Protect from freezing! Avoid free fall.

HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION Material Safety Data Sheets Opaque polymer is non-toxic in single acute oral, dermal, and inhalation exposure tests. Without proper safety precautions, it can be a mild skin and eye irritant. Dow Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) contain pertinent information that you may need to protect your employees and customers against any known health or safety hazards associated with our products. Under the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, workers must have access to and understand MSDS on all hazardous substances to which they are exposed. Thus, it is important that you provide appropriate training and information to your employees and make sure they have available to them MSDS on any hazardous products in their workplace. Dow Company sends MSDS on non-OSHA hazardous as well as OSHA-hazardous products to its customers upon initial shipment (including samples) of all its products (whether or not they are considered OSHA-hazardous). If you do not have access to one of these MSDS, please contact your local Dow representative for an additional copy. Updated MSDS are sent upon revision to all customers of record. MSDS should be obtained from your suppliers of other materials recommended in this bulletin.
