(short for Golden Artist Colors) Specialty Acrylic Polymers are based on 100% acrylic polymer emulsions. The s are useful as mediums or modifiers of acrylic paints. s can be used to extend acrylic colors, to regulate transparency, create glazes, increase gloss, reduce viscosity or improve adhesion and film integrity. can also be used for binding pigment solids for various effects and surfaces. Unlike the other GOLDEN Mediums and Gels, GAC Acrylic Polymers have only a minimum amount of thickeners, levelers, defoamers and surfactants to ensure good film formation.
Promotes Adhesion / Film Hardness and is the hardest and least flexible polymer offered. It is Ideal for mixing with acrylic colors to increase film hardness, reduce dry film tack and to increase adhesion to many non-porous surfaces. Dries to a clear, high gloss, finish. GAC 200 is not recommended for flexible supports.
