It has a unique reaction profile with low levels of polyethylene glycol. This product provides additional stability against viscosity creep, shear thickening, and freeze-thaw separation when post-added to acrylic latexes and is useful for both acrylic and styrene-acrylic latexes. It is a pourable and pumpable liquid that is readily solubilized in water with mild agitation. This product is nonionic, making it compatible with anionic and cationic surfactants.
