Excellent low-sheer acrylic thickener that was developed to replace HEC in interior and exterior formulations, giving improved applied hide and reduced spatter.

Key Properties

· Provides low to mid-shear viscosity
· Shear thinning
· Provides excellent leveling
· Improves applied hide
· Cost effective alternative to cellulosic thickener
· Solvent and APEO free
· Low viscosity makes it easy to incorporate
· Spatter resistance
· Mud crack resistance in thick films
· Retains viscosity even after paint dilution
· Prevents hard settling upon dilution
· Stable viscosity over time
· Resists microbial spoilage
