Contact our experts
Product overview
Rheotech™ 3900 is an associative acrylic thickener designed to improve both the rheology and the color acceptance of water based formulations. Its outstanding effectiveness at medium shear rates allows to control very easily the perceived quality of paints during handling and to facilitate coating by roll or by bush, especially for finishing touches. Rheotech™ 3900 ensures safe additions of colorants in water based formulations, limiting viscosity changes and rub-out issues. Rheotech™ 3900 can be used in every kind of alkaline water based formulation and particulary in solvent and Alkyl Phenol Ethoxylate (APE) free formulations.
