- Develops viscosity stability and improves rheological properties mainly in the medium and high shear range
- Improved storage stability, leveling and application properties
- Does not yellow or cause chalking in the cured film
- Brush and roller
- General industrial
- 0.2 – 3.0% on total paint formulation
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. The exact dosage should be experimentally determined.
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.
