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 dispersibility 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 the
individual needs of our clients.
Encotech P Products:
- Increase dispersibility of powders in cold water, creating lump free pastes even at low
- Improve the performance of water based paints in manufacturing, storage and
- 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.
