A rheology modifier with a dual mechanism. The HASE technology works by combining the swelling nature of ASE emulsions with hydrophobic groups that gives physical associations between latex and pigment particles. These associations are strong enough to facilitate high low shear viscosity with reduced splashing, but are weak enough to break under high shear rates of blade coating. This offers improved flow and allows lower blade pressure.
