PRIMAL™ ASE-60 Thickener

Acid containing, cross-linked acrylic emulsion copolymer. It is effective in improving low shear rate (Brookfield) viscosity, resulting in paints that have highly shear thinning characteristics. Paints formulated with PRIMAL™ ASE-60 as a sole thickener, exhibit a high yield value or gel structure, which develops upon removal of shear, ergo, it is suited to the development of moderately textured paints. Non-cellulosic, offers a high degree of resistance to bacterial and enzymatic attack, resulting in long term paint viscosity stability.
