· Highly efficient low-shear thickener
· Imparts in-can viscosity
· Imparts reproducible thixotropic flow
Application performance
· Prevents hard settlement of pigments/fillers
· Provides superior sag resistance
· Reduces phase separation
· Provides excellent suspension
· Improves storage stability
System stability
· No influence on scrub resistance
· Compatible with synthetic resin dispersions
· Compatible with non-ionic & anionic wetting agents
· Compatible with all other classes of thickeners
