Aquaflow™ XLS nonionic synthetic associative thickeners
Chemistry: AquaflowSDS Link >
Aquaflow™ XLS nonionic synthetic associative thickeners (NSATs) represent breakthrough, second-generation liquid rheology modifiers for water-based paints and coatings. XLS stands for "eXceptional Leveling and Sag resistance" and the breakthrough is hard-to-achieve balance of sag-resistance with the superior leveling of characteristic NSAT thickeners.
In all waterborne latex paints, Aquaflow XLS offers painters a virtually drip-free application. Applied hiding is often enhanced due to the superior flow and leveling that helps to eliminate brush marks.
Viscosity retention on tinting is typically improved with XLS in paints that are post-tinted with universal colorant systems. Tinted paint viscosity is more predictable and the superior sag resistance is retained, even after deep tinting.
