Encore Natural Polymers Private Limited’s brand name for water based paint additives is “Encotech-P”. Products sold under this brand are ethylene oxide or propylene oxide derivatives of galactomannans including guar.
The non-ionic nature of Encotech-P products ensure they are highly compatible with other chemical ingredients, additives and preservatives used in water based paints. Surface-treated Encotech-P products enhance the dispersability of powder in cold water allowing lump free solutions. The products also provide pseudo-plastic rheology and excellent water retention properties which improve the processability, brushability and pigment stability. Paints containing Encotech-P products have an excellent leveling effect, at a lower cost than those containing Carboxymethyl Cellulose or Hydroxyethyl Cellulose.
Encotech-P products are available in different viscosity grades, and can be customized to clients’ needs.
• Increase dispersability of powders in cold water, creating lump free pastes even at low speed stirring.
• Improve the performance of water based paints in manufacturing, storage and application stages.
• Improve the processability, brushability and levelling of water based paints due to their pseudoplastic rheology and excellent water retention properties.
• Effective chemical modification increases compatibility with different chemicals used in water based paints, and improves pigment stabilisation in aqueous solutions.
