TYTAN CX additives are used in decorative paints as pseudoplastic rheology modifiers. Their thickening mechanism is based on hydrogen bonding. They have a very noticeable shear-thinning behaviour with a high viscosity build at low shear. This gives a desirable in-can appearance with a premium look to it. These thickeners give a characteristic delayed rheology build, which allows ease of pumping from the mixer, followed by in-can thickening.

Low and Zero VOC options allow the formulation of environmentally friendly paints, particularly for indoor use.
