RHEOTECH™ 1800

Acrylic associative thickener for water-based systems
Product overview
Rheotech™ 1800 is an associative thickener providing a Newtonian rheology profile.Compared to similar HASE type thickeners, Rheotech™ 1800 shows a unique visco-elastic balance, with a smooth transition towards flow as more shear is applied. It provides to the paints a liquid to creamy appearance while showing outstanding flow ability.Belonging to a high performing product line, Rheotech™ 1800 meets most advanced requirements: efficiency, optimized rheology profile, ease of use, pigment compatibility, versatility, water resistance. Rheotech™ 1800 offers advantages when surfactants and/or electrolytes are already present or incorporated to the formulation and also contributes to limit viscosity drop at tinting and to stabilize colored formulations at storage.
