IPPOL T 2800 – water-based acrylic thickener
IPPOL T 2800 is an APEO and formaldehyde-free, universal water-based acrylic thickener.
- Product Group: Water-based acrylic thickener
- Industry: Paints
- IPPOL T 2800 has crosslinking property.
- Excellent thickening efficiency, forming a clear solution upon dilution with water and neutralization with a suitable base.
IPPOL T 2800 is an APEO-free, acid-containing crosslinked acrylic emulsion copolymer with a particularly early and high thickening response in alkali media. Each particle swells significantly when it is diluted with water at a ratio of 1:1 and is neutralized with a base. Under these conditions, the emulsion becomes clear and reaches a high viscosity level.
Solutions of IPPOL T 2800 effectively suspend pigments, abrasives and other fine particle solids. Unlike conventional thickeners, salts of IPPOL T 2800 have no flocculating action; thickened lattices remain free of any creaming tendency and aqueous suspensions are free of sedimentation. IPPOL T 2800 is a stable emulsion, resisting mechanical shear that would be encountered during bulk handling or in high-speed mixing equipment. Once neutralized, solutions of IPPOL T 2800 emulsion shows irreversible behaviour i.e., it cannot be reverted to emulsion form as a reduction in pH will precipitate the polymer. Freezing or addition of soluble iron, copper or multivalent cations to the emulsion may cause the precipitation of polymer solids. In the case of in-situ thickening, IPPOL T 2800 may be particularly added to the paint and paper coating system including the more stable lattice and emulsions without dilution or neutralization. This procedure of in situ thickening or gelation. Solubilization and thickening will take place in situ if the system contains enough free alkalinity. If it doesn’t, alkali can be added to induce thickening. The final pH should be greater than 7,5. Emulsions or latex compounds thickened by this procedure may show a minor viscosity increase for several hours after adding IPPOL T 2800.
