Deuteron® VT 930 is a natural biopolymer derived from polysaccharides. It readily dissolves in both cold and hot water, forming pseudoplastic solutions. These solutions exhibit tolerance to a wide range of temperatures and pH levels. This xanthan gum variant is granulated, clear, food-grade, and easy to incorporate into various applications.

Product Highlights
  • Deuteron® VT 930 is a natural biopolymer based on polysaccharides. It is soluble in cold and hot water and results in pseudoplastic solutions. Solutions based on Deuteron® VT 930 tolerate a wide temperature and pH range. At pH levels <2 and >12 depolymerisation and thus a decrease in viscosity can occur. Because of the granulated supply form Deuteron® VT 930 is easy to use and does not require high shear forces for proper incorporation.
  • Solutions of Deuteron® VT 930 tolerate the presence of up to 40 % of organic solvents such as alcohols or glycol ethers.
  • Deuteron® VT 930 is insoluble in pure organic solvents. Deuteron® VT 930 is stable in anionic and non-ionic systems. In cationic systems it may come to incompatibilities. Deuteron® VT 930 is the transparent version of Deuteron® VT 920.
  • Deuteron® VT 930 creates a strong structure viscosity. The viscosity decreases when the shear force is increased. It quickly returns to the base viscosity when the shear force is removed. This prevents settling of pigments and fillers and separation of the liquid phase during storage.
  • It also makes application easier by stabilising the sagging behaviour. The product is compatible with most commonly-used binders and thickeners used in the coating industry.
