A broad selection of thickeners within each key technologies Urethane-based (HEUR) and Acrylic-based (HASE & ASE)

Coapur™: a range of associative polyurethane thickeners which covers a broad spectrum of rheology profiles, from newtonian to pseudo plastic, delivering exceptional flow and leveling behavior. Coapur™ range applications will be presented during the show.

Rheotech™: a range of associative acrylic thickeners to achieve in can appearance, syneresis control, and outstanding thickening effectiveness with excellent environment profiles. Such properties have made Rheotech™ ideal alternative to cellulosic thickeners.

Viscoatex™: a range of acrylic thickeners, broadly used thanks to their robustness and versatility, especially in adhesives.

Two distinct ranges of dispersing agents:

Ecodis™ range is recommended when both outstanding shelf life and cost/performance ratio are required for medium to high PVC formulations.

Coadis™, range agents designed to meet specific requirements of coatings such as gloss, corrosion or scrub resistance. Coadis™ dispersing agents are recommended for TiO2 optimization (Bumper technology™).
