General Properties

 Water retention

Substantially reduces the loss of water when applied to water absorbing materials especially in high-temperature environments,  effectively prolonging the opening time.

Anti-sagging resistance

Increases the thixotrophy of the product and prevent sagging to various substrates.  provides adhesives with better slip property.

Thickening effects

Increases the viscosity of the product and enhances the stability of the suspension. When used as a thickener in building applications, it prevents segregation and improves the cohesion of the formulation components.

Non-ionic charges

Compatible with other ionic and non-ionic additives in aqueous solutions, providing a stable combination when dissolved in water.

Higher gel temperature

Higher gel temperature, ensure the stability of the final products.

pH stability

Stable in the range of pH 3.0~11.0.
