PIDICRYL 4260 A is a cross-linked acrylic copolymer emulsion, which is used as a rheology modifier for paints and coatings. This product is used because of its high thickening efficiency in alkaline medium, which in turn provides better paint viscosity stability.
PIDICRYL 4260 A comes with low-VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), making it safer for the environment. It exhibits excellent compatibility with acrylic/styrene acrylic/vam acrylic based paint.

PIDICRYL range is a global leader in developing innovative emulsifiers and rheology modifiers. We specialize in the production of high performance polymers that can be tailored to meet specific application requirements such as easy wetting, excellent solids handling, exceptional retention of viscosity throughout the life of the application, lower VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions and improved safety performance.

Direction for Use

  • Pidicryl 4260 A should be dilusted with equal quantity of water prior to addition of alkali.
  • To thicken this product any of the commercial bases such as Ammonium hydroxide, liquor ammonia etc. may be used.
  • Heating this product with excess base i.e. pH above 10 is undesirable as properties may change.
