TAFIGEL®

TAFIGEL®

Brand Details

MÜNZING's TAFIGEL® rheology modifiers are designed to cover a wide range of viscosity profiles. Focus is on good application properties, easy incorporation, and positive influence on properties of the coating formulation like gloss, water resistance, etc. Our range of synthetic rheology modifiers includes anionic associative acrylic (HASE) and nonionic associative PUR (HEUR) thickener technologies. The TAFIGEL® series makes it possible to optimally adjust the different rheological profiles and the associated properties of water-based coatings. A more newtonian flow property ensures excellent leveling, high gloss, and brush drag. Strong pseudoplastic rheology profiles lead to a high sagging resistance and excellent sprayability. Medium pseudoplastic polyurethane thickeners create a universal rheology profile and can be used for brush and roller as well as for spray applications.

TAFIGEL AP 17 is synthetic acrylate-based thickener for coatings and paints with a pH-value up to 12. It is particularly designed for an enhanced storage stability and to minimize the post thickening effects in paints such as silicate-based interior- and exterior wallpaints. Moreover, it does not raise the undesired elastic behaviour and ensures a good application ability of paints. This product increases notably the wet abrasion resistance compared to cellulose ethers.
