Abstract:

Polyamide compounds have been widely used as organic rheology control agents in solvent-borne systems, but have more recently gained interest in water-borne coatings. Polyamide-based rheology control agents have been used primarily to achieve performance characteristics such as anti-sagging and anti-settling due to the pseudoplastic flow from the 3D network structures of amide compounds. In recent years, however, they have been in the spotlight as materials that can contribute to aesthetic improvement by controlling the orientation of matting agents or metallic pigments. This presentation will deliver an overview of polyamide rheology control agents and will focus on the rheological characteristics and aesthetic improvements that can be achieved by them.
