Which paint thickener is better? Polyurethane VS Acrylic

2021-08-24   Pageview:1113

Water-based paint uses water as a diluent, does not contain organic solvents, and is more environmentally friendly. It is quite popular in interior decoration. However, the viscosity of water-based coatings is relatively low, so it is necessary to add water-based coating thickeners to improve the viscosity and fluidity of the coatings during the production process. There are many types of paint thickeners, including acrylic thickeners, polyurethane thickeners, cellulose, alkali swelling thickeners,  polyurethane thickeners for aqueous etc.










In response to the requirements of environmental protection development, water-based coatings have been developed by leaps and bounds in recent years. Many companies have embarked on the “oil-to-water” route and joined the water-based coatings market to compete for the market.

The new trend of environmental protection development of water-based coatings is irreversible, if you want to be more competitive in the coatings field. It is bound to need to improve the technology of water-based coatings and improve the production formula. The construction performance of water-based coatings is one of the criteria for considering the quality of coatings.

Compared with traditional coatings, water-based coatings are more environmentally friendly and have high requirements for construction performance. The construction needs to be free from sag and splash, and has good flow and leveling performance. Due to the high requirements for interior decoration, it is necessary to ensure a good coating film after coating construction, uniform coating film, smooth after construction, with good protection, water resistance, and corrosion resistance. The production process of water-based coatings is relatively complicated. To obtain good construction performance, convenient construction and storage, coating thickeners must be included in the production formulation of coatings. Due to the needs of construction and storage, architectural coating thickeners need to be added to the formulation of water-based coatings.

Whether it is traditional coatings or water-based coatings, wax additives as one of the additives are also indispensable, welcome to inquiry.
