THIXOL™ 53 L by Coatex is a liquid acrylic associated thickener. It provides a strong pseudoplastic rheological profile to water-based systems. This product significantly prevents settling and sagging without affecting levelling properties. It develops its thickening efficiency through hydrophobic interactions which will influence viscosity at very low shear rate and thus will prevent settling and sagging. The relatively low speed viscosity recovering of THIXOL™ 53 L after coating provides a real thixotropic effect and improves the compromise between levelling and sagging: a better levelling will be reached without sagging. THIXOL™ 53 L thickener is a liquid product which is easy to use. It can be incorporated at each step of paint manufacture and especially at the final step. THIXOL™ 53 L is solvent free and can therefore be used in V.O.C. free formulations. THIXOL™ 53 L associated thickener addition level is between 0.1% and 1% of dry product on total formulation, which in most cases is below 0.5%.
