Rheology Modifiers for Water-Based Paints
Our brand name for water based paint additives is “Encotech P”. Products sold under this brand are ethylene oxide or propylene oxide derivatives of galactomannans including guar.
The non-ionic nature of Encotech P products ensure they are highly compatible with other chemical ingredients, additives and preservatives used in water based paints. Surface-treated Encotech P products enhance the dispersibility of powder in cold water allowing lump free solutions. The products also provide pseudo-plastic rheology and excellent water retention properties which improve the processability, brushability and pigment stability. Paints containing Encotech P products have an excellent leveling effect, at a lower cost than those containing Carboxymethyl Cellulose or Hydroxyethyl Cellulose.
