There are many reasons why Tylose H 4070 NG4 is an essential component in water-based paints for ceilings, walls and facades. Paint application should be smooth and easy, splashing should be kept to a minimum. Only a small amount of Tylose H 4070 NG4 is required to achieve these qualities. A concentration of 0.2% - 0.5% is typically required, depending on the system used. The choice of tylose types depends on the application and requirements. The Tylose types most commonly used in coating materials are Tylose HS and Tylose H.

Application Features
The inclusion of Tylose can improve the following properties of dispersion paints:
Rheological properties such as leveling and splashing
• Storage stability • On time • Hiding power
Film formation
The following properties of Tylose are necessary for the optimization of coating materials:
• Densification / Consistency Adjustment
Water retention
Acts as a protective colloid
• Bonding strength
Darkening / Consistency Adjustment
Technically, the most important feature of Tylose® is its ability to increase the viscosity of liquids and thus act as a thickener.
The thickening effect of Tylose is highly dependent on its concentration (shown in the diagram below).
Also, the effect of the degree of polymerization (shown as different viscosity levels) on the thickening effect of Tylose is clearly visible.
While all other parameters are constant, the viscosity of Tylose solutions increases with increasing viscosity level.
Aqueous Tylose solutions show a pseudo-plastic effect (shear thinning); This means that the viscosity of the solutions decreases with increasing shear rate.
This so-called softness is specific to each Tylose type and the respective viscosity of the grade.
High viscosity Tylose grades have a stronger shear thinning effect than low viscosity ones.
Darkening / Consistency Adjustment

Tylose provides the required consistency for application by providing a specific rheological profile or flow characteristic.
This makes the paint easier to apply. Tylose amount and viscosity determines the viscosity level and leads to optimum application properties.
During application, a viscosity that decreases with increasing shear stress is desired.
Pseudoplasticity serves to optimize the application properties of the coating system according to the rolling, scrubbing resistance and splash behavior.
It is recommended to use hydrophobic modified Tylose for low spatter interior paints.
Thanks to the binder thickening effect, the viscosity will increase at high shear speeds, thereby reducing spatter.
Correlation between the rheology profile of a paint and its application properties can be provided by our technical staff.
Due to its thickening effect in coatings, Tylose acts as a stabilizer for dispersed components.
Serum formation i.e. pigments and fillers etc. The tendency to precipitate exhibited by insoluble components such as, is slowed or even stopped altogether.
As a result, the coating material is protected against slow deposition of its components and is also stable during storage.

Water retention
An important feature of tylose is its pronounced water holding capacity.
It prevents water from penetrating the absorbent substrate too quickly, resulting in better adhesion to the substrate.
To the greatest extent possible, water will remain in the coating material during drying.
A uniform film formation is achieved and incipient cracks are prevented.
Especially in formulations with high pigment volume concentrations, the water retention effect of Tylose provides sufficient open time for application.
Adequate water retention in paints mainly depends on the type and temperature of the substrate, as well as the concentration and viscosity level.

Function as a Protective Colloid
Coating materials are predominantly dispersions of pigments and fillers in an aqueous medium.
Tylose acts as a protective colloid by preventing the agglomeration of solid particles. This leads to better storage stability and easier agitation of the paint.
Due to its molecular structure and specific properties, Tylose is a highly effective protective colloid.
It is widely used in other application areas such as polymerization to prevent polymer coagulation.

Binding Force
Especially in distemper, Tylose H 4070 NG4 acts as a binder by combining solid particles and binding them to the substrate.
Tylose H 4070 NG4 has strong adhesion strength, good dry bond strength and dry adhesion. For these reasons, Tylose ensures good adhesion between the coating and the substrate.

Tylose H 4070 NG4 for Personal Care

Personal Care products include all areas of nutritious and decorative cosmetics.
Nourishing cosmetics include hair care, skin care and oral hygiene.
Decorative cosmetics include makeup, powder, eyeshadow, and mascara.
In addition to its thickener effect, Tylose H 4070 NG4 improves the foam stability of shaving foams, retains moisture during the perm process, increases the adhesiveness of adhesive creams, acts as a binder in powder make-up and facilitates the distribution of coloring agents in the hair.
Tylose H 4070 NG4, a physiologically harmless cosmetic additive, offers numerous applications in the field of personal care.
Tylose hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) is our most widely used additive in cosmetics. In addition to ultra-pure cosmetic types, our standard Tylose types can also be used.

Application Features
The following INCI definitions apply to Tylose grades, which can also be seen in the International Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients and International Buyers Guide.
Hydroxyethylcellulose (HEC) (Tylose H and HS types)
Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC) (Tylose MO, MOB, MOBS and MOBT types)
Methyl Hydroxyethylcellulose (MHEC) (Tylose MH, MHB, MHS and MHBS types)

Emulsions are widely used in the skin care field.
A finely dispersed mixture of oil and water, normally two immiscible liquids, is present in an emulsion without any visible segregation.
One liquid exists as small droplets dispersed in the other liquid.
Depending on the phase in which the droplets are formed, a water-in-oil emulsion (W / O emulsion) or an oil-in-water emulsion (O / W emulsion) is possible.
Preferred stabilizers for O / W emulsions are thickeners moving in the water phase.
Tylose's surface activity is low compared to tenside products.
However, due to its thickening effect and colloidal protective properties, Tylose makes an important contribution to the stabilization of the emulsion formed.
In this case it is preferred to use low to medium viscosity Tylose H types.

High compatibility

Non-ionic Tylose H, MH and MO types show good compatibility with a large number of surfactants.
They are also compatible with many other raw materials such as starch, dextrin, gelatin, sorbitol and propylene glycol.
Due to their chemical structure, Tylose grades show good compatibility with electrolytes.
Soluble phosphate, carbonate and sulphate exhibit a stronger flocculation effect at higher concentrations than nitrate and chloride.
Electrolyte compatibility of Tylose H grades with chlorides is generally higher than Tylose MO grades.
In addition, AlCl3 provides a higher thickening effect with Tylose H grades (see diagram below).

Although Tylose is insoluble in most organic solvents, it exhibits relatively good solubility in water / organic solvent mixtures such as ethanol, isopropanol or glycerol and water, even when relatively high fractions of the organic solvent are present.
The diagrams below show the viscosity development in water with ethanol, isopropanol and glycerol using the Tylose H or MO grades.
