A rheological additive is a thickening agent ， not only thicken the paint to prevent sagging under its construction ， and can give coatings excellent mechanical properties and storage stability. For low viscosity water-based paint ， it is very important class of additives.
There are water-based and oil-based points. In particular， the aqueous phase is more common thickeners . Essentially a thickener rheological additives ， can regulate the rheological thickening agent ， a thickening agent so that the adhesive and sealing to prevent the precipitation of the filler ， to impart good mechanical stability of the construction process of the flow control TS （ did not sag when sizing no dripping ， no flash liquid ） ， also plays a role in reducing the cost .
Especially is important for the manufacture of adhesives and sealants ， storage， use， and regulation can be improved viscosity， stable ， anti-settling ， infiltration reduction ， anti- drip ， thixotropic properties. [ 1 ]
Food grade thickeners - prime meat is an aqueous phase thickener， but it is also an oil phase thickener， that is， it can be a lot of water -absorbent， can form a gel absorbent 30 times， 50 = -100 times the absorbent can into a paste ， water 100-200 times ， you can make the water and contain protein ， fat formation system richness ， strong texture . Vegetarian meat is extracted from the marine algae and terrestrial plants konjac ， algae will grow in the process of photosynthesis ， carbon dioxide is absorbed by the sea ， good for the environment ， add meat in vegetarian foods ， but also a love of the earth ， green way of life.
