PasandTMThixotropic Agent THX100 is an essential anti-sagging, the anti-settling material in formulating paint systems. There are a great number of paint additives, among which thixotropic agents are particularly important.
Thixotropic agents are classified into two categories, organic and inorganic thixotropic agents. The organic thixotropic agents include not only mono component products, but also hybrid types as well as pre-activated products.
Features and Benefits
· It prevents sagging during coating application and controls film thickness.
· It helps with anti-settling in paint storage and easier re-dispersion of settlement.
· It improves brush ability.
In paints - coating is required to have two contradicting characteristics. Firstly, low viscosity so that it would flow with ease when shear is applied to it, and secondly, enough viscosity to prevent sagging when the shear is removed. This change in viscosity desired of a coating is called thixotropy and thixotropic agents are used to making a coating which meets this requirement.
Safety & Handling
The material must be handled as an Industrial chemical, wearing protective equipment and observing the precautions as mentioned in the MSDS.
Store in a dry, well-ventilated area. Keep container closed. Keep away from heat, sparks, and flames.
