CFCM Nouryon Bermocoll FLOW 400Nouryon has launched Bermocoll FLOW cellulose ether, a new product that combines the flow and levelling properties of an associative synthetic thickener with the stability properties of a cellulose thickener. Bermocoll FLOW, Nouryon says, delivers an optimal balance of sag resistance and levelling along with improved spatter resistance and hiding compared to paint systems made with standard thickeners. Moreover, the product is soluble in water, and well-suited for low volatile organic compound (VOC) paint formulations and airless spray applications. This makes it a natural, more sustainable alternative for both interior and exterior decorative paints.

“The versatility of Bermocoll FLOW allows our customers to achieve an optimal paint rheology profile while eliminating the need for complex paint thickener systems,” said Rob Vancko, vice-president paints & coatings at Nouryon. “Our new technology enhances application and finished paint properties while providing sustainability benefits and a low carbon footprint for our customers.”

As an alternative to associative synthetic thickeners for rheology control of decorative paints, Bermocoll FLOW can deliver little to no spatter through proper flow behaviour. 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.
