CHATTANOOGA, TN, November 16, 2006 -- Alco Chemical (www.alcochemical.com) has published a new brochure containing information about the company's patented ALCOGUM® rheology modifiers.
"ALCOGUM Grademaster Portfolio - Rheology Modifiers & Water Retention Additives" details rheology solutions that optimize paper, construction, coatings, adhesive and textile processes as they:
o Build and stabilize viscosity o Control flow properties by adjusting the rheology of coatings o Increase water retention o Stabilize surface aesthetic by controlling coating immobilization or placement o Improve optical properties such as gloss, opacity and brightness o Develop polymer networks that build coating structure
Because off-the-shelf products are not optimized process solutions, Alco Chemical has developed product families within five platforms, which are detailed in the folder:
o ALCOSPERSE® low molecular weight dispersants o ALCOGUM preneutralized gum type thickeners o ALCOGUM alkali swellable polymers o ALCOGUM associative alkali swellable polymers o STRUCTURECOTE® biopolymers
