DeCAL 1200 – Synthetic Thickener for Water-based Systems

DeCAL 1200 is an anionic polymer dispersion in mineral oil used as a general-purpose thickener giving short flow rheology across a wide pH range.


DeCAL 1200 can be used as a thickener and rheology modifier for many aqueous adhesive, paint and coating compositions, and requires no pH adjustments for activation when used within the range 4 – 11. DeCAL 1200 is particularly effective in low solids systems to prevent settling, such as shed and fence paints.


  • Offers improved electrolyte tolerance when compared to traditional alkali swellable emulsions.
  • Supplied in a highly concentrated form so providing good viscosity at low concentrations
