Additives for Polymer Dispersions


Providing optimized rheological profiles.

Thickeners are not only used to increase the viscosity of dispersions, but to adjust their rheological profiles, required for certain types of application processes. Our TEGO® Rheo additives, associative polyurethane thickeners, provide either newtonian or pseudoplastic flow behavior. The achievable thickening properties are excellent even at low pH-values. Moreover the product offers antimisting properties for gravure roll applications.

Our polyurethane thickeners can be used for systems which need to show shear-thinning behaviour as well as for systems that require a stable viscosity independent from shear forces, e.g. thick layer applications.
