Paper Coating Associative Thickeners These have a long history of use in paints. They consist of an essentially hydro¬philic, water-soluble polymer with strongly hydrophobic terminal groups or side chains. The hydrophobic terminal groups are aliphatic or aromatic hydrocarbons, and they are completely insoluble in water. They are joined to the main polymer backbone by means [...]

Paper Coating Thickeners The main function of thickeners is to adjust the viscosity of the coating color to the desired level and to impart the necessary degree of water retention (Table 3.5). Thickeners must be able to interact strongly with water molecules if they are to increase the water retention of coating colors. They also [...]
