Pigment Printing Thickener HF-201
This product is anionic synthetic thickener made by acrylate monomers. It applies to pigment printing and has the similar effect with PTF Thickener. HF-201 is eco-friendly.
Appearance: yellowish oily liquid with light kerosene odor
PH value:6.0-7.0 (application range:4.0-12.0)
Dosage:3%, rotary viscosity can reach 4000cps
1.Pasting quickly, HF-201 can thicken immediately at high stirring speed when adding water;
2.Excellent compatibility with pigment printing binder, pigment printing ink and other fixing agents;
4.If the viscosity of water-based ink is not enough, HF-201 can thicken it without bad effect, the rest ink mixed with HF-201 has excellent stability;
5.Great thickening ability, dosage 2-3% for flat printing, <2% for rotary printing;
6.Good soft hand feeling, non-sticky, sharp patterns, high color yield;
7.HF-201 can thicken the pre-emulsion, the water-based ink mixed with HF-201 can mix with water-in-oil pre-emulsion;
8.HF-201 can thicken the rubber paste, clear paste and color paste.
1.Before making ink, stirring quantitative water at high speed, and adding moderate amounts of HF-201 until get the proper viscosity;
2.Please adding small amount of HF-201 and stirring if the pre-emulsion don’t have enough viscosity.
1.The ability of HF-201 for thickening soft water is greater than hard water;
2.Do not use HF-201 together with cationic auxiliary;
3.Can be stored for more than 1 year at 0-40℃ temperature, dry and ventilated place;
4.If the hand, cloth or tools are stained with thickener, please clean with fabric or paper first, then wash by little salts electrolyte and water;
5.Above contents are confirmed by practice, please doing experiment before use.
