RHEOVIS® rheology modifiers
RHEOVIS additives encompass a broad portfolio of synthetic rheology modifiers designed for aqueous systems, including non-ionic associative (HEUR / HMPE), anionic associative (HASE) and non-associative anionic (ASE) technologies. Each product class has its own properties and applications to enable formulators to achieve their desired rheology profile with all types of resins. RHEOVIS PU and PE series of associative thickeners stand out as a class of groundbreaking additives based primarily on hydrophobically modified polyether and polyurethane derivatives. RHEOVIS HS and ASE are pH activated polyacrylate technology for ease of handling and in-can stability. Rheovis® rheology modifiers enable paint producers to adjust the flow behavior of paints. That way, painters benefit from improved viscosity and application characteristics. Our Rheovis® rheology modifiers • reduce dripping and spattering of paint during roller or brush application, • improve sag resistance of a paint by a rapid, but controlled viscosity increase after application, • prevent sedimentation of the pigments within a formulation during transport and storage of the paint.
