RHEOLATE HX6050 - A New, Highly Efficient Associative Thickener from Elementis

(Posted on 13/07/15)

RHEOLATE® HX 6050 from Elementis Specialties is a 25% active solids, nonionic synthetic associative thickener for aqueous applications. It is designed as a highly efficient, high-shear (ICI) builder for low and zero VOC paints. It is especially efficient in VAE, VA/VEOVA, and PVA latexes.
 
The highly efficient thickening of RHEOLATE® HX 6050 and its contribution to high shear viscosity means it can replace existing combinations of thickeners to simplify manufacturing procedures, and can be used at a lower level. Improved paint film properties can also be achieved.
