Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Dow
ACRYSOL™ RM-7 by Dow Chemical is a remarkably versatile hydrophobically modified alkali-soluble emulsion (HASE) thickening agent for latex coatings, providing a nearly Newtonian rheology profile. This rheology modifier is distinguished by its capacity to generate lower viscosity in low-shear conditions and higher viscosity in high-shear conditions than cellulosic thickeners deliver. Permits lower thickener levels, paints form films with much improved resistance properties. Designed for use in water-based architectural and industrial coatings. Enables excellent balance of flow/leveling and film building, maximum gloss development and superb spatter resistance. It is virtually immune to microbial attack due to its synthetic nature and leaves minimal brush marks. Shows broad latex compatibility and is highly effective as a sole thickener in many formulations. It is a low-viscosity liquid for ease and convenience of handling. Is exceptionally well suited to use with all-acrylic emulsions—RHOPLEX™ SG-30 Emulsion in particular—being developed for low-VOC, non-flat waterborne paints. ACRYSOL™ RM-7 is equally advantageous in paints based on hydrophilic PVA binders.
