The product is recommended to be used in water-based multi-color paint, latex paint, adhesives, sealants, water-based dyeing slurry.
Pre-gel: When formulate the 20% pre-gel, the initial viscosity is a little high, so add the R484 into the water slowly, it shall emerge good fluidity after 1 hour. (Try to use soften water or deionized water, if only get the hard water, please process it before the usage: ions exchange, polyphosphates and ect). Increase the temperature (35-60℃), adding electrolyte and high-speed shearing can promote the informing of pre-gel, while in the acid range, the stability property of R484 shall be weakening.
If use the R484 in organic solvent, the solvent content should be controlled and not exceeded the following concentration: Methyl alcohol 50%, Ethyl alcohol 30%, Isopropyl alcohol 30%, Ethylene glycol 50%.
The product is packed by 25kg/independent package, please store it in a cool and dry place. The storage period of the product is up to 12 months at least, since the delivery date. After it all, the product should be inspected before usage.
