◎、 General Description LTP-202A Thickener for pigment printing is an anionic acrylic polymer, serving as printing carrier in coating printing on textiles. LTP-202A can be equal with PTF thickener in performance, but its price is more competitive than that of PTF.
Appearance Solidcontent Viscosity PH value
yellowish viscous liquid 38±2％ 45.000～60.000mpas 6～7 （Acceptable PH 4～12）
Mix with water：2％ dosage of LTP-202A，rotary viscosity can be higher than 22pa.s.
◎、 Property and features
1. Good fluidness, easy to mix with other water-based materials.
2. Strong water cohesive and thickening capability under high-speed stirring.
3.High consistency with printing binder, pigment pastes and other textile printing auxiliaries.
4. If pigment doesn’t reach enough consistency, then thickener can be added, which won’t have undesirable effect on printing result.
5. High thickening capability. 1.5-2% in flat screen printing and less than 2% in rotary screen printing.
6. High quality stabilization. Strong anti-dilution and free of bad smell.
7.Good uptake color for printing presswork, Clear boundary for color tone, Feel soft to the touch
8. Increase consistency of slurry and they water slurry also can be mix for use with different oil-water based paste
9. In case of blend of slurry, transparent slurry, Color-printing slurry, Please use PTE to strengthen the consistency if the consistency is not enough
1. On preparing printing paste, add appropriate dosage of PTE to measured
water and stir at high speed until reaching required consistency.
2. In case printing paste is not viscous enough, then add some PTE when
◎ Safety Notes
1. Thickening ability in soft water is better than that in hard water.
2. Don’t mix with cationic auxiliaries.
3. One year of quality guarantee under storage temperature at 0-40℃.
4. Please use cloth or soft paper to clean when getting blotched by thickener, and
wash with salt electrolyte and water
Notes: Above listed information is confirmed through practice, but owing to different textile printing technics, please make sure one after experiment.
