This company has introduced SOLTHIX(tm) A100 polymeric associative thickener. Based on acrylic technology, the product is extremely efficient at delivering high viscosity at low shear - with lower dosages required to achieve excellent anti-settling and anti-sag performance. The product is directly incorporated into the paint, with a process step being saved, as no pre-gel preparation is required. SOLTHIX(tm) A100 complements SOLTHIX(tm) 250, which prevents thermal sag with minimal effect on gloss in a wide range of solvent-based paint applications.
