How does it work?

HEUR rheology modifiers act on the viscosity of formulations through:
  • the polymer solubility thanks to the hydrophilic chain
  • the associativity between binders/surfactants and the hydrophobic end groups
  • The self-assembly mechanism depending on the design of the hydrophobic end groups

They are nonionic thickeners thus pH adjustment is not mandatory.
