ACRYSOL™ RM-12W Rheology Modifier

An APEO-free*, solvent-free*, hydrophobically modified ethylene oxide urethane (HEUR) rheology modifier. It is designed to offer high low-shear (Brookfield) viscosity with an extremely shear thinning rheology and excellent thickening efficiency. This rheology profile helps improve brush/roller loading, while offering good anti-drip properties, good in-can structure, and an excellent flow/sag balance.

Uses:

  • For interior and exterior economy paints.
  • For use in flat to semi gloss formulations
  • For use in water-based architectural and industrial coatings
  • For used in high-build architectural coatings

Benefits:

  • Broad formulation latitude
  • Efficient Brookfield viscosity build for enhanced sag resistance
  • Rheology profile helps deliver improved roller loading during application
  • Delivers shear-thinning rheology profile similar to HEC without spatter during application
  • APEO Free*
  • Formaldehyde free

*made without APEO-containing surfactant
