  • Features

    • Particularly useful thickener in acrylic high-gloss and anti-corrosion paints
    • Improves rheological properties of aqueous coatings systems, allowing for easier application of paint with brush or roller, esp. for emulsion paints.
    • Can be used in pure acrylic, styrene acrylic and styrene butadiene emulsions
    • Can also be used in water-emulsifiable two-component systems and air- and stove-drying paints
    • VOC-free

  • Applications

    • Water-emulsifiable two-component systems
    • Air- and stove-drying paints
    • Emulsions
      • Pure acrylic
      • Styrene acrylic
      • Styrene butadiene

  • Dosage

    0.1 – 2.0% on total paint formulation

    Borchi® Gel L 76 is easy to use. Because of its low intrinsic viscosity, it can also be added after mixing without pre-dilution for adjustment of viscosity. Higher dosages are generally needed for production of gloss paints. It should be dissolved directly in the solvent in question and added to the mill base. The exact amount should always be determined beforehand in trials.

  • Storage

    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.
