Many compounds, “flow modifiers”, have been used to change the flow properties of coating adhesives. Thiourea, ammonium thiocyanate, and urea were used in the work to find out what effect they would have on the coating adhesives, starch and alpha protein. It was found that they all lowered the viscosity a great deal. Also it was found that the resulting flow curve in most cases pseudoplastic.
