Borchi® Gel Thixo 2

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by OMG Borchers

Borchi® Gel Thixo 2 by OMG Borchers is a harded castor oil-based product. Acts as a rheology modifier and thickener. It enhances the thixotropic character and reduces settling & floating of pigments and promotes pigment dispersion during manufacture. Also improves the properties of the finished paint (e.g. spreadability, rheological behaviour). Permits the application of thicker layers, reduces curtaining and increases the depth of color of the paint. Suitable binding systems include alkyd resins, drying oils, chlorinated rubber, epoxy resin esters, unsaturated polyesters and polyurethanes. Recommended for gloss, silk finish and matt paints containing solvents of a non-polar or weakly polar nature.
