ACRYSOL™ RM-1600 Rheology Modifier

An APEO-free*, solvent-free*, hydrophobically modified ethylene oxide urethane (HEUR) rheology modifier. This product is a high-shear (ICI) building associative thickener that offers formulators efficient ICI contribution with minimal medium-shear (KU) response. This product demonstrates a Newtonian rheology profile that offers flexibility with the choice and level of mid-shear rheology modifier to facilitate an excellent performance balance., especially in high volume solids formulations or formulations utilizing small particle size acrylic binder technology.


  • For premium and standard interior and exterior high volume solids paints
  • For use in flat to gloss formulations
  • For use with highly efficient binder chemistries


  • Efficient ICI viscosity build without KU viscosity build in high volume solids and highly efficient binder systems
  • Improves leveling and surface smoothness in premium coatings
  • APEO*, formaldehyde* and solvent* free
  • Helps improve stability in highly efficient systems

*made without APEO-containing surfactant
