Golden GAC 100 237ml

GAC (Golden Artist Colors) Specialty Acrylic Polymers are 100% acrylic polymer emulsions offered by GOLDEN. These polymers serve as mediums or modifiers for acrylic paints, providing a range of benefits and applications. They are designed to regulate transparency, extend colors, create glazes, increase gloss, reduce viscosity, improve adhesion, and enhance film integrity.

GAC polymers can be used to extend the volume of acrylic colors while maintaining their properties. They can also be used to adjust the transparency of paints, allowing artists to achieve different levels of opacity or translucency. Additionally, GACs can be employed to create glazes, which are thin, transparent layers of color that can be built up to achieve depth and luminosity in a painting. By adding GACs, artists can increase the gloss of their paintings, giving them a shiny, reflective finish.

These acrylic polymers are particularly useful for reducing the viscosity of acrylic paints, making them more fluid and easier to work with. By adding GACs, artists can achieve a smoother application and improve the flow of the paint. GAC polymers also contribute to better adhesion, ensuring that the paint adheres well to the painting surface and improves the overall integrity of the paint film.

One of the advantages of GAC Acrylic Polymers is their minimal use of thickeners, levelers, defoamers, and surfactants. This ensures good film formation without compromising the characteristics of the acrylic paint.
