Aquaflow Xls Series The Next Generation Of Rheology Control Chemistry: Aquaflow
Aquaflow XLS-series NSATs are highly efficient, second generation, low-shear effective liquid thickeners. The Aquaflow XLS chemistry provides an optimized balance of leveling with exceptional sag-resistance through a unique engineered structure recovery behavior. This balance of properties means that painters will appreciate a virtually drip-free application resulting in beautiful finished painted surfaces free of brush marks, which is particularly desirable in semi-gloss and high-gloss paints.
Aquaflow XLS-series rheology modifiers also deliver improved viscosity retention upon point-of-sale tinting with universal colorants. XLS technology works well in whites, ready-mix colors and tint bases, including deep bases, which often present a challenge for other synthetic thickeners.
Three Aquaflow XLS grades are available and are optimized according to tint base and resin type.
All grades of Aquaflow XLS rheology modifiers are supplied as low-viscosity, APEO-free and solvent-free liquids for a cost-effective designed rheology solution in an environmentally responsible package, ideal for your next generation of greener paints.
