    MaxxThix® MT-1

    MaxxThix® MT-1 is a high efficiency alkali-swellable emulsion thickener for use in emulsion polymer compounds. Applications include textile coatings, paints, mastics adhesives, back thickeners for print pastes, and viscosity modifiers for pad baths. The rheology of this product is “short” and “buttery”.

  • null

    MaxxThix® MT-2

    MaxxThix® MT-2 is an alkali-swellable emulsion thickener for use in emulsion polymer compounds. It imparts a “yield point” to coatings formulated with it. This “yield point” minimizes the settling of fillers and causes minimal penetration of coatings formulated with it. Applications include textile coatings, paints, mastics adhesives, back thickeners for print pastes, and viscosity modifiers for pad baths. The rheology of this product is “long” and “elastic”.

  • null

    MaxxThix® AT-17
