Diamide wax based organic thixotropes are standard rheology modifiers in the formulation ultra-thick applied non-aqueous industrial, marine and protective coatings. The new THIXATROL® PM 8058 has been designed for a very sustainable manufacturing terms of effectivity and has been based on a high content of renewable resources (82%). Due to its outstandingly high effectivity and low temperature activation requirements it allows a significant reduction of energy consumption during processing. As very tolerant against highly polar solvent, e.g. various alcohols THIXATROL® PM 8058 fits very well into the formulation of modern aromatic less or free coatings.
