Rheological additive for intermediate polarity systems.
PANGEL B20 is a powdered additive with a high thickening and anti-settling capacity for intermediate polarity systems, particularly recommended for systems based on aromatic and unsaturated polyester type solvents.
PANGEL B20 is particularly recommended to provide thixotropic, suspension and sagging-resistance properties to systems based on aromatic and unsaturated polyester type solvents, PANGEL B20 does not require the use of a polar activator for its dispersion. PANGEL B20 provides a strongly pseudoplastic character, producing high consistency levels without affecting viscosity during application. It exhibits its high effectiveness as anti-settling additive in formulations with high solid contents.
Use of PANGEL B20 has the following advantages against other conventional additives:
•Coatings and paints: Prevents settling of pigments and fillers; controls sagging without aggravating leveling; high stability during transportation and storage.
•Printing inks: Improves consistency and prevents settling of pigments.
•Unsaturated polyester putties: Improves consistency and workability.
•Paint strippers: Improves stability and facilitates stripping action.•Greases based on vegetal oil: High thickening capacity; good stability at high temperature.
•Asphalt coatings: High thickening capacity; application in thicker layers; sagging control.
• Sealants and joints: Improves wetting and suspension properties; controls sliding.
•Others: Control of sagging and dripping; improves stability
