Designed for use in the formulation of waterborne coatings and architectural or decorative paints, Texicryl 13-317 is a hydrophobically modified alkali-swellable thickener with a good film build, levelling, and roller splatter-resistance which is most effective in water-based formulas and water-based decorative coatings.
Although Texicryl 13-317 was originally developed as a medium shear-rate viscosity thickener, it has also proven its effectiveness at high shear rates, showing Newtonian rheology characteristics in formulated systems.
Texicryl 13-317 has a 30% solids content, 30mPa s viscosity and 1.06 specific gravity at 25°C, a pH of 2.5, and a particle size of 100nm.
