Solid paints

Solid paints (also known as Crème) and high-thixotropy paints are used exclusively in the do-it-yourself sector. These kinds of paints are used for their decorative effects on interior walls and ceilings. In addition to its colouring effects, with solid paints a surface structuring is achieved. Solid paints can only be used with special, purpose-designed rollers. They have little tendency to spatter and so cause a minimum amount of mess. They cannot be tinted after manufacture.

 

Tylose® HS/H- and MH-types with a medium viscosity level are recommended in combination with synthetic thickeners to adjust the viscosity.

Coating materials

Coating material

Due to numerous properties, Tylose® is an important component in water based paints. The most essential properties of Tylose® for the optimisation of coatings are; adjustment of consistency, water retention, binding power and the function as a protective colloid.
