High solids hydrophobically modified alkali-soluble emulsion (HASE).

Offers ease of incorporation and rapid viscosity. Possesses low odor and zero VOC. Provides very good flow, leveling and spatter resistance, high gloss development and microbial and mildew resistance. Can be used in combination with other HASE and cellulosic thickeners for optimum enhanced high-shear viscosity in medium and high PVC vinyl acrylic coatings.
