Water-based paints are mainly used for the protective and decorative coating of interior walls and ceilings but are also used for exterior applications.
Paints, in particular with a high pigment volume concentration (PVC), owe their good processing properties to Tylose®.
The use of Tylose optimises the following properties of coatings:
- Consistency for application
- Water retention
- Binding power
- Storage stability
Furthermore, open time, spattering, levelling, hiding power and film formation of the coating material are enhanced by the use of Tylose.
The choice of Tylose types depends on the application and the requirements, the most commonly used types are Tylose HS and Tylose H grades.
