HIVIS-104MD

Description

HIVIS-104MD is a water-soluble polymer belonging to the class of carboxyl vinyl polymers. Having a high affinity for water, alcohol and glycol, it can be easily dispersed in these solvents.

Even in low concentrations, HIVIS-104MD has a thixotropic gelling high viscosity body with good transparency and high yield value. This polymer exhibits superior performance compared to the other natural or synthetic water-soluble polymers in terms of thickening, dispersion stability, ageing resistance and resistance to microorganisms.
