Our DeCAL range is suitable for a wide variety of applications across a range of industrial sectors.
A range of synthetic alkali polyacrylate thickeners to give high viscosity non-stringing rheology for easy to apply formulations at alkaline pH. Products in this range are suitable for use in a wide range of applications, including:
A range of associative thickeners for aqueous systems for use where improved flow is desirable. Products in this range are suitable for use in a range of applications, including:
A range of synthetic thickeners for water-based systems with a pH between 4.0 and 11.0, providing rheological control in a wide range of uses including:
Cationic Acrylic Copolymer, enhances performance whilst promoting excellent spreading characteristics across a range of applications.View products in this series
DeCAL 1900 is a novel polymer emulsion suitable for thickening non-aqueous liquids including hydrocarbon-based solvents such as kerosene and mineral oil.
DeCAL 1900 provides a shear-thinning type rheology and aids anti-settlement. It allows the end user to achieve required viscosity through varying the amount of of DeCAL 1900 added.
All products in the 2000 series are synthetic dispersants and demonstrate a high degree of stability to prolonged storage under hot alkaline conditions and effective over pH range 5.5 to 14. Suitable uses include:
DeCAL 2020 rheology modifier enables the formulation of paints with a Newtonian rheology and is suitable for use in a wide range of paints (from flat to high gloss). To obtain the best balance of flow and sag resistance it can be used in combination with other thickeners, of natural or synthetic origins. It is supplied as a pourable and pumpable liquid, free of solvent.
DeCAL 2020 allows development of formulations for gloss and semi-gloss paints for brush applications, with excellent flow and levelling properties. For roller application, however, it is suggested to use it in combination with other more pseudoplastic thickeners.
A range of highly efficient surfactants and wetting agents, suitable for a range of uses including:
A range of high performance acrylic resins for water-based systems. Suitable uses include:
A range of silicone-free defoamers for aqueous systems many of which are suitable for use at elevated temperatures. Suitable uses include:
A range of silicone-based defoamers for aqueous systems many of which are suitable for use at elevated temperatures.View products in this series
The DeCAL 9000 Series is a diverse range of water treatment chemicals, from anti-scalant for water treatment of boilers and cooling systems to polyacrylates for thickening water-based solutions in a variety of industrial settings including:
DeCAL ERT09 Self-emulsifiable rapeseed oil provides a better option where mineral oils are traditionally used as it is solvent-free and biodegradable with none of the health risks associated with petrochemicals. Retaining all of the properties of natural rapeseed oil, it is readily emulsified by simply adding water and agitating.View products in this series
