Substantially reduces the loss of water when applied to water absorbing materials especially in high temperature environments, effectively prolong the opening time.
Increases the thixotrophy of the product and prevents sagging to various substrates. Provides adhesives with better slip properties.
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.
Easily dissolves in cold water.
Stable in the range of pH 3.0~11.0.
Compatible with other ionic and non-ionic additives in aqueous solutions, providing a stable combination when dissolved in water.
