HEUR Thickener for the Medium Shear Range
Borchi® Gel 0625 is a HEUR rheology modifier (Hydrophobically modified Ethoxylated Urethane copolymer rheology modifier). This solution works well as a medium shear range thickener for improved rheological profiles in coatings. Borchi® Gel 0625 is a VOC-, APEO-, and tin-free non-ionic polyurethane-based thickener for water-based coatings.

- 0.2 – 3.0% on total formulation
The exact dosage should be experimentally determined. The best incorporation method is to add it after the pigment/filler dispersion stage but prior to being let down. Under low shear mixing conditions, a pre-dilution in water or a mixture of water/propylene glycol may be necessary for complete incorporation.
Protect from the effects of weathering and store at temperatures between 5 and 30 °C. Once opened, containers should be resealed immediately after each removal of the product.
