Elementis Unveils RHEOLATE CVS® 11 Thickener for the America Decorative Coatings Market

Published on 2012-02-28. Author : SpecialChem

Elementis Specialties introduced RHEOLATE CVS® 11 for the Americas decorative coatings markets. This efficient non-ionic mid-shear thixotropic thickener is designed for low and 0 VOC waterborne decorative coating systems and is suitable across a broad range of chemistries. This advanced technology provides excellent sag resistance while maintaining superior flow and leveling performance. Compared to other associative thickeners RHEOLATE CVS® 11 helps to reduce viscosity loss upon tinting and has excellent color properties, even in deep and clear bases. RHEOLATE CVS® 11 is more efficient than RHEOLATE CVS® 10 with higher solids and viscosity.

RHEOLATE CVS®-11 is a mid-shear (KU) and high-shear (ICI) thickener for a wide variety of latex paints (acrylic, vinyl acrylic, and styreneacrylic, vinyl-acetate ethylene) in both interior & exterior applications. RHEOLATE CVS®-11 is effective over a broad PVC range: flat thru high gloss.

Key Properties:

  • Excellent balance of sag resistance and flow
  • Good KU efficiency
  • Good viscosity stability upon colorant addition
  • Good stain resistance and removal
  • Does not harm other properties
  • Broad compatibility with latexes and thickeners
