Rublev Fluid Medium is a multi-purpose, vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) polymer emulsion. Rublev Fluid Medium dries to a clear, soft and flexible film. Rublev Fluid Medium is ideal as a sealer for protecting against Support Induced Discoloration (SID), a condition resulting from impurities that are drawn up through an unprimed substrate as paint dries, discoloring the paint. Rublev Fluid Medium is also useful for diluting and extending colors, increasing flexibility and film integrity, sizing for fabric, and sealing wood. Rublev Fluid Medium will wet out solids, including pigments, more readily than other polymers and is useful for artists formulating their own paints.
WARNING: This item is subject to freeze/thaw damage. Please check winter weather conditions before ordering this product.
Common Uses: Sizing, protection against Support Induced Discoloration (SID), linseed oil blocker, extending paints, paint-making with dry pigment
|pH||9.0 to 9.5|
Tg or glass transition temperature is the temperature region where the polymer transitions from a hard, glassy material to a soft, rubbery material.
MFFT or minimum film forming temperature is the lowest temperature at which the solid portion of an aqueous polymer dispersion (also called latex or emulsion) self coalesces in the semi-dry state to form a continuous polymer film, which in turn acts as a binder for the rest of the solids in the paint film.
pH is a numeric scale used to quantify the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution.
