The Universal Selection Source: Coatings Ingredients

Coatex
Thanks to its robust range of thickeners and dispersing agents, Coatex provides technical solutions to recurrent formulators issues (color acceptance, storage stability, water resistance...) for waterborne wall paint, wood coating and specialty coating formulations.

Formulate eco-friendly coatings thanks to Coatex rheology additives


Coatex aims at commercializing products with low environmental and health impacts.

Coatex rheology modifiers are not only high-performance additives but also eco-friendly!

The dispersing agents and thickeners are designed for use in EU Ecolabel compliant indoor & outdoor paints & varnishes. These rheology solutions contribute to remove APEO and derivatives from formulations and also to lower VOC and SVOC (semi-volatile organic compounds) contents. Read more on that subject.

Eco-friendly coatings with environmental benefits

Eco-friendly coatings thanks to Coatex water-based additives Coatex eco-friendly waterbased additives for eco-friendly coatings provide perfect solutions to enhance formulations' performance while being compliant with environmental regulations:
  • Solvent free
  • VOC free
  • APEO free
  • Low odor
  • Formaldehyde free
  • Heavy metal free
  • Tin free
  • Halogen free (chlorine, bromine)
  • Formol free
  • EnVia certified


Thanks to all these characteristics, in addition to offering superior performance to various coating applications, Coatex waterborne rheology modifiers ensure that the formulations are more environmentally safe. With today's market demand, formulating eco-friendly products is a critical challenge!

Coatex waterbased additives for eco-friendly coatings: Certification and REACH

   Coatex both has the ISO 14001 (certificate n°2009/36324b) and the ISO 9001 (certificate n°1991/292d) certifications.

All the polymers used are compliant with the EC Regulation 1907/2006 (REACH) and are exempted from registration which guarantees formulators that Coatex rheology modifiers are not harmful for health and for the environment.

Innovation and Awards

Innovation and Award for Coatex rheology modifiers   The field of rheology modifiers is of main focus to have continuous innovative raw materials and manufacturing processes.

Coatex owns in-house patented monomers and molecules.

Coatex has been awarded at Green Industrial Coating Asia with the "Best Coating Raw Materials Environmental Friendly Award" thanks to its new eco-friendly coatings additives technologies that enable formulators to reduce their environmental impact.

In addition, Coatex won the prestigious Ringier Coatings Technology Innovation Award in the "additives" category in 2014. This distinction rewards the Bumper technology™ and particularly the dispersant Coadis™ BR 85.

The Ringier awards are given annually to a selection of innovative products, technologies, or processes. They recognize companies for their contribution to the coatings industry in China, such as technical innovation, improved productivity, economic efficiency and market opportunity creation. Ringier Technology Innovation Awards are regarded as one of the most important awards in China's coating industry.
