Rheological additives

Special modification of synthetic flake silicate, powder suitable for water-borne system.

General information

TEROGEL L rheological additives can hydrate to colorless transparent colloid with low viscosity in the water, and can keep liquidity in 12 months when it in the water content is 20%. When adding a bit of electrolyte, it becomes high viscosity gel in a very short time.  Apply to water-based automotive paint, water-borne wood coatings, Water color coating, water-based industrial paint, painting materials. Compared with conventional rheological additives, it has superior sag resistance and excellent shear-thinning at low package viscosity.
