Acrysol ASE-60 is an acid containing, cross-linked acrylic emulsion co-polymer. When the emulsion is diluted with water and neutralized with a base, each emulsion particle swells greatly. The emulsion clarifies under these conditions and becomes highly viscous.
Acrysol ASE-60 is effective in improving low shear rate (Brookfield) viscosity, resulting in paints that have highly shear thinning characteristics. Paints formulated with Acrysol ASE-60 as a sole thickener exhibit a high yield value or gel structure. This structure develops upon removal of shear, hence Acrysol ASE-60 is suited to the development of moderately textured paints.
As Acrysol ASE-60 is non-cellulosic, it offers a high degree of resistance to bacterial and enzymatic attack, resulting in long term paint viscosity stability. It is also recommended for use in textured paints, or as a secondary thickener to control sagging in paints having too much flow.
