A next generation inverse emulsion synthetic thickener, Texipol 63-425 is based on a significant proportion of bio-derived content. It imparts pseudoplastic rheology to aqueous compositions.
Texipol 63-425 is supplied as a pre-neutralised dispersion as the sodium salt of an acrylic based polymer. It gives almost instantaneous thickening when mixed directly into aqueous formulations. It is already neutralised so there is no need to adjust the pH to activate
Typical thickener dosages are 0.5 – 2.0%, though this is system dependent and higher paste viscosities may require higher addition levels.
Texipol 63-425 has increased electrolyte resistance and good emulsification properties.
