Our Winter 20/21 Series of OCCA Weekly Webinars continues with "Improving Paint Performance through the Use of Innovative Associative Thickeners" presented by Udo Schonhoff of Elementis
This webinar is free to attend, simply register below and you'll receive further details & joining instructions in due course.
Non-ionic synthetic associative thickeners (NiSAT) are widely used in aqueous industrial as well as decorative formulations. No other thickener class offers the possibility to create the unique rheology that improves application performance.
Our recent advances in NiSAT thickener technology have allowed for a significant step forward in the performance of waterborne coatings based on hydrophilic binders. This presentation will show how advances in NiSAT thickener technology are now providing architectural waterborne coatings with optimal thickening efficiency and superior application with improved dried film performance properties.
