VISCON is a water soluble biopolymer produced for use in hydraulic cementitious systems, as a Viscosity Modifying Agent (VMA) it imparts high solution viscosity. VISCON  has a pseudoplastic rheology profile (e.g., is shear thinning) providing - low viscosity at high shear rates (easy to pump and place), high viscosity at low shear rates (provides superb particle suspension).  VISCON exhibits little viscosity change over a wide temperature range.
