EFKA® RM 1920

Rheology modifier that provides excellent sag resistance for non-aqueous formulations with standard thixotropy.

EFKA® RM 1920 is a particularly finely ground additive used to impart a thixotropic effect to paints, printing inks and other coatings. The incorporation of EFKA® RM 1920 ensures a strong thixotropic effect in non-aqueous coatings. Sagging of thick films on vertical surfaces is effectively prevented whilst the working and flow properties are also generally improved. Pigment settling is also substantially reduced. EFKA® RM 1920 can be used in most non-aqueous coatings both with and without solvents. The lower the polarity of the coating, the better is its performance.
