Detailed description

Nouryon’s line of Alcogum rheology modifiers are outstanding hydrophobically, alkali swellable emulsion (HASE) polymers that can be used to achieve the desired rheological profile for your product. These associative thickeners provide much better control over a wider range of shear rates compared to more traditional synthetic polymers. Our rheology modifiers prevent settling in the paint can, improve sag resistance after the paint is applied, and increase color acceptance.
