  • Features

    • Develops viscosity stability mainly in the low shear range
    • Will not cause yellowing or chalking in cured film
    • Added at low levels so water and scrub resistance of the cured finish will not be affected
    • VOC-free
    • APEO-free
    • Organo tin-free

  • Applications

    • Coatings
      • Aqueous architectural
      • General industrial

  • Dosage

    • 0.1 – 2% on total paint formulation

    Borchi® Gel LW 44 is easy to use and can be added at any stage of the formulation without pre-dilution. In some cases, pre-dilution is preferred (e.g. 1:9 in water). The exact dosage must be experimentally determined.

  • 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.
