TAFIGEL® PUR 80

TAFIGEL PUR 80 is designed as an “associative thickener” which builds up and stabilizes viscosity by forming a network between polyurethane, binder molecules and other paint ingredients. TAFIGEL PUR 80 can be used alone or in combination with other TAFIGEL thickeners, as well as with further thickener technologies. Aqueous gloss paints, thickened with TAFIGEL PUR 80 show minimal pseudoplasticity, similar to the rheology of solvent borne systems. TAFIGEL PUR 80 is recommended for use in following systems: Interior and exterior paints, latex paints, anticorrosive paints, adhesives, and printing inks.

TAFIGEL® PUR 61

TAFIGEL PUR 61 is a so-called associative thickener, which builds up and stabilizes viscosity by forming a framework between thickener molecules, binder and pigments. Formulations with TAFIGEL PUR 61 exhibit maximum pseudoplasticity. Viscosity is increased primarily in the low shear rate range, but without generating an elastic component that worsens the flow. The low viscosity in the high shear range resulting from the thickener results in excellent sprayability of the coating systems. TAFIGEL PUR 61 can be used alone or in combination with other TAFIGEL thickeners or with cellulose or acrylate thickeners. TAFIGEL® PUR 61 has been optimized for easy handling and easy incorporation. In many cases, the thickener can also easily be used in post-dosing.
