Rheological additives

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

General information

TEROGEL LP 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 30%. 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 resistence and excellent shear-thinning at low package viscosity.
