Aquaflow XLS series nonionic synthetic associative thickeners (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.
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.
