TAFIGEL® rheology modifiers comprise a range of thickener types for water-based systems. TAFIGEL® PUR thickeners work via a HEUR-type mechanism, whilst TAFIGEL® AP thicken via an inverse emulsion or HASE mechanism. A whole spectrum of rheological characteristics is achievable with this range: from Newtonian to highly pseudoplastic. Our PU thickeners have a non-ionic structure, allowing them to thicken independent of pH whilst improving compatibility with other formulation ingredients. Viscosity is built (favoured over elasticity) which means low spatter and good pick-up. This makes them an excellent choice for paints, lacquers, emulsion plasters, adhesives, sealants, and printing inks.
