A rheology modifier, sometimes known as viscosity modifier, is used to thicken and structure formulations. As such, a good rheology modifier helps the product in which it has been used to become flowable and easily poured when a force is applied. Consequently, rheology modifiers are commonly used in paints, adhesives and inks.
A suitable rheology modifier for numerous applications
Integrated Chemicals has a wide range of rheology modifiers for use in paints and other products. The range contains rheology modifiers for various solvent based and water based systems, such as inks and coatings. Suitable rheology modifiers for PVC plastisols are also in supply. Additives from the latter category have been engineered to control sag without thickening the formulation and to incorporate into the product more easily. For use in paints and other water or solvent based systems, various rheology modifiers have been engineered by our experts. Some are acrylic based, while others are PU or even mineral based. They not only thicken the formulation, but can also lead to more Newtonian or non-Newtonian behavior and prevent sedimentation.
