Delayed Thickeners

TYTAN™ CX additives are used in decorative paints as pseudoplastic rheology modifiers. Their thickening mechanism is based on hydrogen bonding. They have a very noticeable shear-thinning behaviour with a high viscosity build at low shear. This gives a desirable in-can appearance with a premium look to it. These thickeners give a characteristic delayed rheology build that allows ease of pumping from the mixer, followed by in-can thickening.

Low and Zero VOC options allow the formulation of environmentally friendly paints.


    • Low and zero VOC grades available.

    • Delayed structuring of rheology. This can be tuned.

    • High viscosity build at low shear.

    • Pseudoplastic rheology profile with pronounced shear-thinning.

    • Often used in combination with other rheology modifiers.


    • Delayed structuring allows for easy pumping of product followed by in-can thickening.

    • Excellent sedimentation resistance (retards syneresis).

    • Excellent in-can appearance and flow. Looks very solid.
