PANGEL W range is formulated to work as thickener and water retention additive in emulsion paints.
PANGEL W is a highly efficient thickener based upon organically modified clay manufactured from highly purified sepiolite, that produces high low shear viscosity without impairing the application properties of the formula. Viscosity is not influenced by temperature no pH and together with pseudoplasticity has also a thixotropy. Exhibits water retention properties with increased open time.
PANGEL W offers the following properties in water based formulations:
- Easy to disperse
- Specially suitable for high solids content formulations
- Increase productivity
- Excellent can stability
- Reduces syneresis
- Adequate consistency
- Excellent sag control
- Avoids sedimentation
- Good leveling
PANGEL W is added in the pigment and filler dispersion stage, after the moistening and anti-foam agents and before adding the pigments and fillers. Typical addition levels are 0.1-1% of Pangel W by weight of total formulation.
