Acrysol™ RM-1600

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by Dow Chemical

Acrysol™ RM-3030 by Dow Chemical is a hydrophobically modified ethylene oxide urethane (HEUR). Acts as a non-ionic rheology modifier and ICI-building associative thickener based on proprietary technology. It is a solvent- and surfactant (APEO) free product. Exhibits newtonian rheology profile, spatter resistance, viscosity stabilization and improved syneresis resistance in broad formulation latitude. This offers improved surface aesthetics, minimal mid-shear rheology response, minimal KU contribution for improved cost-in-use, broad formulation latitude and excellent thickening efficiency without compromising stability. Provides good film build up with excellent flow & levelling, flexibility, surface smoothness, applied hiding and low odor. This clear to hazy liquid is easy to handle and incorporate during manufacturing process. ACRYSOL™ RM-1600 Rheology Modifier decouples high-shear viscosity from mid-shear Krebb Units (KU) contribution for formulation stability and reduced viscosity drop upon tinting for tailored rheology and paint differentiation. It is an excellent fit for high active solids content, EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymer, hydrophobic, small particle size binder formulations and high tint-loading formulations where maintaining viscosity is desired. Acrysol™ RM-3030 by Dow Chemical is used in low VOC solvent-free and water based high gloss trim paints, highly toned deep base paints and accent paints.
