Introducing the dehydro™ range of high performance redispersible polymers
The traditional market of redispersible polymer powders include hydraulic systems such as tile adhesives, exterior and interior renders, self levelling compounds, joint fillers, grouts and exterior insulation finishing systems (EIFS). Acquos’ dehydro™ range of high performance redispersible powders have been developed to be used in such hydraulic setting systems. Furthermore, given the high performance nature of the dehydro™ range, manufacturers are able to expand the fields of application of their finished products. We have therefore delivered to our customers, a competitive advantage by delivering higher flexibility, better water resistance and greater compatibility with a greater range of hydraulic systems dehydro™ Redispersible polymer powders are unique in that being based on acrylic technologies they offer benefits to the formulator in being able to obtain flexible and higher water resistant polymers than the traditional redispersible polymer powders on the market.
Acrylic technology is the next level of redispersible powders. Acrylic polymer technology has long been appreciated as the polymer of choice for cement based products due to the excellent hydrolysis resistance of the acrylic polymer backbone, and the versatility of the polymers obtained such as flexibility, clarity, core/shell polymer morphologies, chemical stability, water resistance, excellent resistance to alkaline environments, versatility and rheology characteristics not easily attainable with traditional polyvinyl alcohol stabalised systems.
