As an alternative to associative synthetic thickeners for rheology control of decorative paints, Bermocoll® FLOW can deliver little to no spatter through proper flow behavior, also known as rheology. This new type of hydrophobically (water-soluble) modified cellulose ether bridges the gap in thickeners, thus creating a product that goes on smoother with less sagging in both interior and exterior decorative paints.

“Our global network of paint application labs and partners, as well as our focus on enhancing application properties, positions Nouryon well within the fast-growing Paints and Coatings end-market,” said Larry Ryan, Executive Vice President and President of Performance Formulations and the Americas at Nouryon. “Nouryon is a recognized leader in increasing the sustainability profile of paints and coatings while maintaining and even improving overall performance profiles for our customers.”

Bermocoll® FLOW joins our Bermocoll® family of products of non-ionic cellulose ethers that are soluble in water and used in a variety of industrial applications to create desired performance enhancements for both dry-mix mortars and paints. Bermocoll® products have been produced for more than 50 years and are sold in more than 80 countries.

Bermocoll® FLOW, was introduced today, April 5, at the American Coatings Show (ACS), in Indianapolis, Indiana. Visit Nouryon at Booth #864 and come see Dr. Helena Wassenius present Bermocoll® FLOW on April 6 at 1:40pm eastern time at ACS.
