Dispersing aid for paints and coatings​

Carboxyline® CMI is an anionic functional biopolymer. We produce it by synthesizing a carboxymethyl group onto an inulin backbone to create an ingredient with mild sequestering, anti-scaling, and dispersing properties.

It aids the dispersion of actives, preventing them from settling and sedimenting at the bottom of the paint can, while its high water solubility and hard-water-ion tolerance make it ideal for waterborne paints, without altering their viscosity.

What's more? Carboxyline® CMI is inherently biodegradable, which makes it a sustainable alternative to many oil- and phosphorus-based multifunctional ingredients.
