Thixol™ 53 L

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by Coatex (Arkema Group)

THIXOL™ 53 L by Coatex is an aqueous dispersion of an acrylic copolymer. It is a liquid acrylic associated thickener providing a strong pseudoplastic rheological profile to water based systems. THIXOL™ 53 L can usefully be combined with purely associative thickeners such as COAPUR™ 3025, COAPUR™ 5035, BR 100 P or RHEOTECH™ 2000 / RHEOTECH™ 2800 modifying high shear rate viscosity and consequently reducing spattering, improving levelling and film build, especially in flat and semi-gloss paints. Its addition level is between 0.1% and 1% of dry product on total formulation, which in most cases is below 0.5%.
