VISCOATEX™ 46

Acrylic thickener for water-based systems
Contact our experts
Product overview
The use of Viscoatex™ 46 in water-based systems allows an increase in the yield value (i.e. low shear viscosity). Its use in textured coatings stops sagging and gives a good body to the coating without decreasing brushability. In paints and adhesives, Viscoatex™ 46 avoids the formation of syneresis and sagging. In pigments and extender dispersions (pigment pastes or slurries), the use of Viscoatex™ 46 avoids settling.
