Recommended Concentrations

0.5 - 2.0% on the finished product
The additive should be incorporated together with the binder. Our tests have shown that styrene acrylic emulsions require a higher dosage of Loxanol® OT 5846 than vinyl acetate copolymers. It is recommended to begin the tests with 0.5% and to increase this amount until the desired effect is obtained.
