HISOL is Hankuck Latices' brand of hydrophobically modified alkali swellable (HASE) thickeners. The HISOL products are recommended for use in coatings, inks and putties that maintain a pH at or above 8.0. At pHs below 8.0, systems thickened with HASE thickeners exhibit abnormal rheology and poor viscosity stability.
The HISOL 300 and 700 series are based on the second generation of HASE technology. These products provide excellent pigment wetting properties, exhibit less syneresis, are more biologically stable and are significantly more efficient than conventional HASE products. The increased efficiency results in lower dosages, which yields reduced water sensitivity of the systems in which they are used.
