    Rheology Characteristics
    VISCOPTIMA SE boasts shear thinning rheology and is non-thixotropic. This results in a reduction in viscosity when a force is applied to the formulation, such as pumping or spraying, and immediate recovery of the viscosity when the force is no longer applied. This is a particular benefit when particles are suspended in the formulation.

    • Appearance:  White liquid
    • Active Content:  50 - 55%
    • Charge:  Anionic
    • Effective pH range:  6 - 12
    • Viscosity:  70,000 - 100,000 (1% w/w cP, 25C RVT/6/20 rpm)
