Product overview
Rheotech™ 4000 LC is a low carbon footprint HASE thickener designed to improve both the rheology and the color acceptance of water-based formulations. Rheotech™ 4000 LC exhibits a carbon footprint reduction of more than 15% compared to standard HASE thickeners with no compromise on performance. 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™ 4000 LC ensures safe additions of colorants in water-based formulations, limiting viscosity changes and rub-out issues. Rheotech™ 4000 LC can be used in every kind of alkaline water based formulations and particulary in solvent and Alkyl Phenol Ethoxylate (APE) free systems.
