Product Description

AQ™ Polymers are solid, water-dispersible aromatic sulfopolyester resins. They are commonly used as a fixative or film former in personal care, coating, ink, adhesive, and textile applications. AQ™ polymers, also known as polyester-5, can be easily dispersed in warm water without the addition of surfactants or co-solvents to form stable dispersions of small, anionic aggregates. Water-based dispersions of AQ™ polymers form thin clear films rapidly at ambient temperatures when applied to surfaces. Grades of AQ™ polymers vary in charge density and glass transition temperature allowing formulators the ability to tune the flexibility, tack, and water resistance of films formed with these sulfopolyester resins.
