· Provide pigment non-settling suspension without affecting apparent viscosity.
· Prevent hard sedimentation in storage containers.
· Maintain stable viscosity during storage.
· No adverse influence on film gloss.
· Do not affect the water resistance.
· Non-yellowing and do not contribute to discolouration.
· Do not interfere with the drying mechanism of the paint film.
· Need no chemical activation for achieving thixotropy as some inorganic anti-settling agents do.
